As your code supports both, you can use either 'port based traffic control-Storm Control' or you can police rate using QoS.

If your purpose is just limited to restrict bandwidth then first option is much easier to configure on per interface basis whereas by using second method you can mark violating traffic. This can be helpful if you want end to end QoS.

Refer this if you need configuration help:

Hi, it seems like my switch can input the policy-map command.
