The blocksize is not a property of the file but of the filesystem. In JFS sa well as JFS2 the blocksize is always 512 bytes like in almost every UNIX filesystem i know of.

If you want to know some other properties of a filesystem like nbpi (number of bytes per inode), fragment size, etc. issue

lsfs -q <FSname>

or, if it is a LV property you are looking for

lsattr -El <LVname>

or alternatively

lslv <various options> <LVname>

dependig on the information you are looking for.

Hope this helps.
