I'm not sure, but maybe
getconf LONG_BIT
will do it. It returns 32 on my system. I don't have a 64 bit system available.

Try this

isainfo -v

Output looks like this
isainfo -v
64-bit sparcv9 applications
32-bit sparc applications

This is 64 bit.

if come back with only 32-bit sparc application then system is
running on 32 bit.
