There is no command as such. You maybe able to obtain control center. Else, estimate table and index sizes and add a buffer of 5 MB to this for rest of object definitions. The size of database folder on hard disk is one way to measure.

Size of table and index, you can get from GUI via average row/key size and then multiplying by number of rows for each table/index. Sum total of all this can get you close to actaul database size.
You can also calculate using formulas:
Size of table = (Average row size + 8) * 1.5
Size of index = (Average key size + 8) * 2
Size of temporary tablespace size = (Average total sort size + 8) * 3.2
Sort size implies aggregate functions MAX, MIN, GROUP BY and ORDER BY columns.

You can also estimate taking sum of data type sizes for all columns in a table/index while taking 70 % size for VARCHAR columns.
You can also query data dictionary i.e. SYSIBM and SYSCAT tables/views and count the total number of pages used * page size after connecting to database.
