Unfortunately there is no way to set this option by means of "smitty mknfsmnt"
nor can it be set by means of the "mknfsmnt" OS command.

If you're going to create a permanent mount (i.e. add an entry to /etc/filesystems)
you will have to edit /etc/filesystems after executing "[smitty] mknfsmnt"
to add "llock" to the "options = ..." line under the appropriate "mountpoint:" stanza.

Should you intend to make the mount temporary (i. e. mount the remote FS without modifying /etc/filesystems)
use the OS "mount" command. "smitty mount" will not allow specifying "llock" either.

This behaviour is consistent across all AIX versions up to AIX 7.1.
