The nearest I found is this:
rpm --queryformat "%{NAME} %{VERSION} %{RELEASE} %{ARCH}" -qp filename.rpm
However that requires the package is installed.  In my case this isn't true.

the -p switch allows you to query the RPM file, rather than the installed RPM.  This method is what I would recommend to minimize your headaches, but it does require you to have all the files (which it appears you do)
