While I agree with Mark's reply, I'll answer your question
with another question.

Why do you want to know which characters are white space?
If it is connected with finding ends of words or looking for
somewhere to break a line, the various writing systems
and cultural conventions worldwide make this process far more
complex than in English.
The Unicode Standard and technical reports give useful
guidance on this.
