If I undestand well, QCA4004 dual band support (2.4 / 5 GHz) is defined by firmware image.

I have not found the proper API in the QCA SDK, how to detect if a concrete QCA4004 supports 2.4 and/or 5 GHz in run-time

Do you have any suggestion?

In QCA4004 UART console, give wmiconfig command.
 shell> wmiconfig

SSID         =
Phy Mode     =   mixed
Power Mode   =   Power Save
Mac Addr     =   84:5d:d7:41:e7:a
Mode         =   Station
Channel      =   0
Heapsize     =   56380
Buffer : Mac (8+0), HTC (3+0), FW (1+0), Free 8, tx (alloc 0, free 0)
Here Phy mode depends on the modes we configured.

wmode -> used the configure wifi mode.
syntax:  wmiconfig --wmode <mode> <ht20|ht40> 
parameters: <mode>  a    802.11a, this works for 5G band. If parameters <ht20 | ht40> is set, the DUT will run in HT20/HT40 mode. If no more    parameters, it will work at pure 11a mode.
                                           b 802.11b 
                                           g 802.11g
                                           n  802.11n, This works for 2.4G band with HT20 mode. 
                                           ht40 This works for 2.4G band. If ht4 0 is set, DUT will work at 11n HT40 mode
