The name of the command looks inappropriate to use for *buffer*.
There is already the command `w3m-region', that you can use for
the current buffer as follows:

C-SPC or C-@
M-x w3m-region RET

As many commands `FOO-region' have friends `FOO-buffer' (e.g,,
`ispell-region' and `ispell-buffer'), we may provide the command
`w3m-buffer'.  Does it meet your wish?

(defun w3m-buffer (&optional url charset)
  "Render the current buffer.
See `w3m-region' for the optional arguments."
  (interactive (list (w3m-expand-file-name-as-url (or (buffer-file-name)
  (w3m-region (point-min) (point-max) url charset))
