If you are logging into it across the internet, it is almost by definition in a "cloud environment," as it is not local. Remember that "cloud" is a marketing term and mostly means, "here's something I I'm dressing up in fancy words to try to sell it to you."
What exactly do you mean by "cloud environment."
And, in general, if you are logging directly into a into VM remotely, I don't know of any way for you to see outside the confines of the VM to determine what its environment may be. There may be one, but I haven't run into it.
