There isn't any at the moment, but it closely follows the ctrl_iface
documentation.  Part of the problem is that since it's pretty much
hand-coded libdbus, it doesn't support introspection, and thus the
documentation is all manual labor.  I've had some ideas to rework the
interface to be more dbus-like, but until that point there really should
be documentation for the existing interface.  I can try to start writing
some up.

In the mean time, feel free to ask questions and I'll do my best to
answer them.  There's also wpa_supplicant/examples/wpas-test.py which
gives a quick overview of using the dbus interface via python.
