Unfortunately there is no easy way to get this information. Even CCSM itself does not do useful checks for conflicts when you add or change a keyboard shortcut.

This is in fact a defect and needs a bug opened against the COmpiz project.

Here's something that might be close enough for you...
Export profile from ccsm with defaults included

`ccsm` -> 'Preferences' [on the left side panel] -> 'Profile & Backend' tab -> 'Profile' section -> 'Export'

Pick a name and location, example ~/CompizProfileBackup.profile
"Do you want to skip default option values while exporting your profile?" 'No'
[NOTE: I think this should be asked before the filePath/fileName is chosen]

The open a bash terminal and copy and paste this in (or retype...)
Adjusting for the filePath/fileName, etc... you can run something like

grep '\<Shift\>\|\<Contro\>\|\<Alt\>\|\<Super\>\|Button\|KP_' -- ./CompizProfileBackup.profile

This should get a list of shortcut keys that Compiz has assigned.

You can export the output to a file `> filePath/fileName.txt`
