One could look to analyse any JavaScript in the page for the presence of 
certain classic "if touch, only do touch, otherwise do mouse/keyboard" 
code blocks (see example 4 of 
https://w3c.github.io/touch-events/#mouse-events), look for other signs 
like code only executed for "touchstart" or similar. But that would 
really only be able to flag up the potential/need for manual checking. I 
suppose using some form of headless browser and test automation system, 
one might be able to construct some automated test...but that's well 
beyond my field of expertise.

Long story short: quickly testing on a touch-enabled laptop that you can 
do everything with a mouse, keyboard, and touchscreen is the simplest test.
