kpathsea gets all its information on how the texmf tree is layed out
from the texmf.cnf file, and is itself agnostic as to whether TDS 1.0,
TDS 1.1, or something completely different is used.

You could look for paths that are typical for TDS 1.0 vs TDS 1.1.

Given that "something completely different" for the layout is unusual
but not impossible, are you certain you're trying to solve the right
problem when looking for the TDS version?
