The -y option specifies a yield. The argument must be a number suffixed by K or M, for kiloton or megaton respectively. Yield arguments above 255M are quietly ignored.
The -a option specifies an air-burst height in meters.
The -h option specifies thermonuclear (hydrogen) weapons.
The -c option specifies cobalt-jacketed warheads for permanent site interdiction.
The -m option, useful with multiple-site nuke calls, invokes code which optimizes delivery using MIRVed warheads to minimize launches.
In accordance with the normal UNIX design philosophy nuke does not prevent you from nuking yourself.
