The answer to that is surprisingly simple: SPDY is not supported and
that's why there's no way to disable it.

It's in general possible to access a few webkit settings in the config
file directly. Alas most of these require reading of the API docs to
make sense of. If you find something that is missing you're welcome to
file it as a feature request https://bugs.launchpad.net/midori/+filebug
is your friend.
