As such there is no command which will give an output mentioning the switch is layer 2 or layer 3. Its the operational functionality which determines if a switch is L3 compatible. For example....
Enable routing on the switch by using the ip routing command.
Check the show running-configuration. Verify whether ip routing is enabled.
