I think I found it (it is a bit burried in font-chi.tex):
\startitemize[c] (or cn) gives the normal Chinese number, cc the 
capitalized, ec the normal Chinese number with one-character 
alternatives for 20 and 30 and ac the Arabic style of numbering.

(For those who'd like to have a how to on using Chinese with UTF-8, I 
updated http://wiki.contextgarden.net/Chinese )

Attached you find the traditional characters (as used in Taiwan, 
Hongkong [possibly decreasing], and in China before 1955); one should 
provide some method to switch between those and the simplified ones 
defined; maybe an option for \setupchinese?
