FWIW, there's a section about "output formats" in the hwloc-ls.1 man page. It's probably worth adding a sentence in there that the list in the man page applies to the filenames; i.e., that the filename determines the output format.

Here's a snipit from the man page:

OUTPUT FORMATS
       - Send a text summary to stdout.

       /dev/stdout
              Send a text summary to stdout. It is effectively the same as
              specifying "-".

       <filename>.txt
              If the filename ends in ".txt", lstopo outputs an ASCII art rep-
              resentation of the map.

       -.txt If the entire filename is "-.txt", lstopo outputs the same ASCII
              art representation as other ".txt" filenames, but with two exe-
              ceptions: 1) the output is sent to stdout, and 2) if colors are
              supported on the terminal, the ASCII art will be colorized.

       <filename>.fig
              If the filename ends in ".fig", lstopo outputs a representation
              of the map that can be loaded in Xfig.

       <filename>.pdf
              If the filename ends in ".pdf" and lstopo was compiled with the
              proper support, lstopo outputs a PDF representation of the map.

       <filename>.ps
              If the filename ends in ".ps" and lstopo was compiled with the
              proper support, lstopo outputs a Postscript representation of
              the map.

       <filename>.png
              If the filename ends in ".png" and lstopo was compiled with the
              proper support, lstopo outputs a PNG representation of the map.

       <filename>.svg
              If the filename ends in ".svn" and lstopo was compiled with the
              proper support, lstopo outputs an SVG representation of the map.

       <filename>.xml
              If the filename ends in ".xml" and lstopo was compiled with the
              proper support, lstopo outputs an XML representation of the map.
              It may be reused later, even on another machine, with lstopo
              --xml, the HWLOC_XMLFILE environment variable, or the
              hwloc_topology_set_xml() function.

       See the output of "lstopo --help" for a specific list of what graphical
       output formats are supported in your hwloc installation.
