You can set the aiSamples attribute.

This is the MEL, but it's not hard to change that to Python:

setAttr "aiSkyDomeLightShape1.aiSamples" 2;

There is no Arnold command, you should use the Maya command.

Thanks for your help but it's possible to add sample to my skydome in python and if it's possible what is the command with only python ?

Same way you would an attribute on any Maya node.

import maya.cmds as cmds 
cmds.sphere( n="sphere" ) 
# Set a simple numeric value cmds.setAttr( 'sphere.translateX', 5 )
