commands usually calls other commands (bdist for instance calls build)
you can get a list of commands with:
$ python setup.py --help-commands
but i don't think you can list the underlying commands. The only
way is to look into the code of each commands.

what are you trying to do precisely ?

you are building two distributions here, one source (.tar.gz) and one binary
look into your dist/ folder.
