Well, if none of your skus have a dash in them you can check the sku for 
the dash that separates the sku from the options:

[if-item-pos 0 =~ /-/]
    This is a variant.
    This is a real sku.

If that won't work for you then you may be stuck with testing to see if 
the sku is in the products table.  This requires an extra hit to the 
database, though:

[if-item-data products sku]
    This is a real sku.
    This is a variant.
