You could use the generic "-string" option (which allows to parse
anything from the command line):

   gmsh -string "Mesh.NbPartitions=16;"

...but it's indeed a bit clumsy. So I've changed the handling of the 
"-part" option: starting with tomorrow's nightly build "-part" will take 
one argument (the number of partitions), so you will be able to simply do

   gmsh -part 16
