If your partition sizes are over 100MB iirc then you'll normally see
warnings in your system.log, this will outline the partition key, at least
in Cassandra 2.0 and 2.1 as I recall.

Your best friend here is nodetool cfstats which shows you the min/mean/max
partition sizes for your table. It's quite often used to pinpoint large
partitons on nodes in a cluster.
