Stuff in your supermarket almost always will not mention that it's suitable for celiacs...you need to call to ask on most things. In the case of corn flour, however, being that it only has that one ingredient (corn), it is gluten-free.

If you are in the UK, then cornflour is what we call corn (maize) starch and is gluten-free. In the US, cornflour is maize, milled to flour consistency. Nice for fried foods.

if it's not specifically masa you're looking for, maybe home grinding is an option? (I don't know how to do the cooking in lime (not the fruit, the mineral) thing...)
