I don't understand the question.  Are you asking how thick a wall has to be in order for Cura to slice it?  In general if the wall is thinner than 2X the nozzle width then it won't slice it.  But there are work arounds.

 

Or are you asking for Cura to look at every wall in your model and tell you which walls are too thin?  Can't your cad software do that?

    I have CuraEngine that runs on my command line. It outputs the print time and volume for a given STL. Is it also possible to output if there any defects in the file, such as whether thin walls are present?

    I don't think so, the purpose of CuraEngine is to slice and not to check your STL for some errors. I would be better to use Cura, there are some possibilities (x-ray or layer view) to check your sliced object.
