Buying any sort of railpass is not automatically the cheapest option. Everything depends on what you intend to do.

For your non-Zurich days you should look at the swisstravelpass:

Read through the pass options carefully and then set the cost of the pass against the total of 'ordinary' point-to-point fares you'll be using. You can find train times, details and fares for all your journeys on the official Swiss railway website in English:

Then you;'ll know whether buying a pass will be worthwhile for your itinerary.

For Zurich, look at the official public transport site in English for info about tickets etc:

The historical city centre is very walkable indeed so it is likely that you won't use much transport at all...perhaps just a boat trip, a train ride up Uetliberg and train to the airport.

When I visited I mostly walked. I only bought and used one '9 o'clock pass' which covered the cost of the boat trip to Rapperswil and the train back from there to Zurich and then the train up to and down from Uetliberg:
