I can't find a 'saxon' program in any Debian package in unstable, but
saxon-catalog includes the 'saxoncat' program, which says:

Usage: saxoncat [options] source-doc stylesheet {param=value}...  or
       saxoncat [options] -k source-doc {param=value}...          or
       saxoncat [options] source-doc docbook {param=value}...

  Accepts options for saxon and uses options to set system properties
  for the arbortext-catalog classes.

albeit with slightly different calling syntax from what you're using

The Saxon processor itself just comes as a set of Java libraries, I
