What should i say do you know who i am or who am i ?
What should I say: do you know who I am, or who am I ?

Not necessarily. You could ask the question to find out whether you have been spoken about to somebody before. For example, if a friend of mine has spoken about me to another of his friends whom I do not know, that person would then know "who I am." Say I meet him one day. To make sure, I could ask "do you know who I am?" in the sense of "have you heard about me before?", which I do not find at all condescending or supercilious.suzi br said:I would avoid saying that in general though. It is a phrase often associated with "famous" people who are trying to impose their status and using "who they are" as a challenge to mere mortals like shop staff and waitresses.
