That's not git's responsibility.  -m wants gets a single argument but
what that is depends on how your shell interprets what you've typed in
on the command line.  That said, -m "initial commit" might be the right
string quoting for cmd.exe.  With typical unix/posix shells, usually any

  -m "initial commit"
  -m 'initial commit'
  -m initial\ commit

will ensure that "initial commit" is interpreted as a single argument
instead of two.
