Does anyone have OLD SCSI tape command documentation? (It may not have "Tape" in name, it may be also named sequential or streaming scsi commands)

It must be written before SCSI-3 was introduced. It is too new if any 16-byte command is documented, for example READ(16).

I'd like to implement simple scsi tape emulation which allows full Amix installation

EDIT: Especially READ CAPACITY is important. Other SCSI documentation says it is not mandatory for Sequential devices but Amix installer simply crashes if tape drive does return unknown command error.. If it returns result, installer thinks it is hard drive..

EDIT2: This is now solved. Tape drives don't support READ(10), drive is not detected as HD if READ(10) returns unknown command.
