How Can You Tell

I generally find that the fish has a rather sooty look, rather than a really deep black, however, very deep wounds can turn very black.

Is it all over the fish? If it is a new fish, they often will turn black a few days after you get them, showing that they were in poor water at the fish store or during shipping.

If it is ammonia burns and you improve the water, then the fish should return to normal colour in about two weeks.

I've always noticed ammonia burns on the tips of fins & tails. I've also noticed, once the params are set, that the burns fade in a week or so, depending on how bad they were in the first place.
