The variables you define in the PE console are stored in the console database in PostreSQL, and are propagated to the Puppet compiler when the console delivers its node classification payload. You can find out the format here:

The global variables will be delivered in the parameters section of the ENC output from the console.

They are likely stored in the database itself, so you would have to either perform a SQL query to figure that out or create a database dump and inspect it. Is there a specific problem you are trying to solve with this information?
