When you say "nomenclature," I presume you are speaking of the specifictions (dimensions, materials). Based on that understanding, I think the answer is, with only that, you cannot evaluate the torque.

You need to know a good bit about the combustion process that takes place, and that requires a knowledge of the fuels, the temperatures, and a lot of thermodynamics.

If you have a credible P-V diagram for the engine at the operating point of interest, then a dynamic analysis of the engine can provide the output torque, based on that P-V diagram. It is not simple, and it requires quite a lot of calculation, but it can be done with some accuracy. But, and this is a big but, it will only be as good as the P-V data you start with.
