Simulink HDL Coder 2.1 is not integrated into the MATLAB Coder. The command line version of the tool is makehdl.
Please search makehdl in matlab documentation.

Native MATLAB code generation was introduced in release R2012a, with HDL Coder 3.0.
Simulink HDL Coder was only available in release R2011a. With R2011a, you will need to place your MATLAB code, manually converted to a suitable fixed-point representation, into Simulink's MATLAB Function block.

HDL CoderTM generates portable, synthesizable Verilog® and VHDL® code from MATLAB® functions, Simulink® models, and Stateflow® charts. The generated HDL code can be used for FPGA programming or ASIC prototyping and design.
HDL Coder provides a workflow advisor that automates the programming of Xilinx®, Microsemi®, and Intel® FPGAs. You can control HDL architecture (49:42) and implementation, highlight critical paths, and generate hardware resource utilization estimates. HDL Coder provides traceability between your Simulink model and the generated Verilog and VHDL code, enabling code verification for high-integrity applications adhering to DO-254 and other standards.
Release Timelines:
Simulink to HDL (R2006b) (also includes support for Stateflow and MATLAB function block)
MATLAB to HDL (R2012a) (also includes automated fixed-point conversion for MATLAB before HDL code generation)
Simscape to HDL (R2018b) (linear and switched linear models)
