Google hates me. For some reason, it's refusing to provide me with a comprehensive list of Quake 1 command line variables. Can you?

Gah. Wrong answer. I'm looking for the prelaunch command line stuff, not the ingame console commands.

Includes things like -game, -width and others.

Are you running the original DOS version or something more recent? Either way, have you tried giving the parameters /?, /help, /h, -h, -help, --help, -? etc? If none of that works and you're using a unix version (or the DOS version but happen to have a prompt on a unix machine handy) you could try running strings on the binary (and any overlays/libraries), and grepping for everything that begins with '-' or '/'. Don't expect any extra explanation of meaning, but it should get you all the possibilities.

That sounds like it could have been a FAQ.

How about this?

Kapow! Nestled deep within a console command list. Looks pretty comprehensive.
