The documentation is supposed to be here:

but it appears whoever added the shm_put_image request forgot to
document it. I've never used xv_shm_put_image (as I said earlier, I
prefer the core shm_put_image combined with RENDER transform), so I'm
afraid I don't know the format off the top of my head.

You could try using xscope and/or wireshark to see what the Xlib
version puts on the wire.
