The mirror properties are part of the scene object properties dialog, which is located at [Menu bar --> Tools --> Scene object properties]. You can also open the dialog with a double-click on an object icon in the scene hierarchy, or with a click on its toolbar button:

In the scene object properties dialog, click the Mirror button to display the mirror dialog (the Mirror button only appears if the last selection is a mirror). The dialog displays the settings and parameters of the last selected mirror. If more than one mirror is selected, then some parameters can be copied from the last selected mirror to the other selected mirrors (Apply to selection-buttons):
