This is a command to set your wireless card into Ad-Hoc mode and has nothing to do with batman-adv.

Please check your drivers if they actually support Ad-Hoc mode and possibly get a different card/module with better supported driver. There may also be a configuration problem here (you use iwconfig, which is deprecated in favor of the iw tool). Please check official Linux wireless documentation for further reading:
