You can get at all the stored definitions using the expression evaluator.

GDMLExpressionEvaluator* calc = GDMLProcessor::GetInstance()->GetEvaluator(); double val = calc->Eval("myvariable");

There is no real way to get a list of the variables defined by GDML, but I should think you'd need to know the names anyways if you're using the values in code rather than just within the GDML file.

I'm afraid that right now you'd have to define a setup, or it will likely crash. However, it should be pretty straightforward to use the parser and then just throw away the world volume it gives you.

Materials and the aforementioned evaluator should be statically accessible, materials via Geant4's standard interfaces and the evaluator via G4Processor::GetInstance()->GetEvaluator().
