Try xdpyinfo. If $DISPLAY is not set, try xdpyinfo -display :0.0 for
the usual main display. ssh -X -Y makes up its own names, but you
haev to figure out whether cron programs should even know about the
display in general, or the ssh ones in particular.
At any rate, try this:
if xdpyinfo >/dev/null; then echo "X running"; else echo "No X"; fi
