What time are you doing lunch today is an interrogative sentence. "What time" could be said as "When" but asking "what time" requests the person state a more specific time. The phrase "doing lunch" is awkward writing, since people eat lunch, not "do lunch". Adding "today" makes it specific to "this day". This kind of question would be asked sometime in the morning hours, in preparation or planning for lunch activities.
