Commercial HDR vs Consumer HDR brightness with SDR source

The 55" LGUU340C is a commercial grade display with HDR 10 and it touts 500 nits brightness but doesn't specify if that is max or average. Some consumer grade LCD displays advertise a max of 600-1000 nits with HDR content (reference: a reviews about the vizio-p75-f1).

With a Win 10 PC as a source (aka SDR source) which display would you expect be brighter: The commercial grade touting 500 nits w/ HDR or the consumer grade touting 1000 nits with HDR?

"Commercial grade" is mostly marketing speak. They are both consumer level displays. A commercial product in this case means it has features that make it suited to installing in an environment with automation or widescale deployment. The image quality isn't any better.

Generally, if there is only one number being advertised you can bet it is going to be the largest number possible. That would be peak. Not average.

What is average brightness? Doesn't really make sense. Maybe you are talking about peak brightness in a 100% window?
