Translation

If We had sent unto thee a written (message) on parchment, so that they could touch it with their hands, the Unbelievers would have been sure to say: "This is nothing but obvious magic!"

Tafsir

And had We revealed to you a Scripture, inscribed, on parchment, as they requested, and had they then touched it with their hands - this is more powerful than saying, 'had they seen it with their eyes', since it [touch] is more effective in eliminating doubt; the disbelievers would have said, in disobedience and obduracy: 'This is nothing but manifest sorcery'.
