I trying to Fix the timing chain need a layout of the timing chain marker.

Get a Chilton's or Haynes manual for your make year and model. Timing chain/belt set up is a standard subject that always includes photos of set up marks either on the block or head(s). Should be able to find one online, ebay or amazon.

Where will I find the timing mark in relation to the camshaft on a Toyota Hilux 3Y 2L engine?

There is no mark. Toyota makes use of 2 different colored links on the timing chain. Get the no 1 cylinder on TDC. Align one of the 2 different colored links on the chain with the mark on the crankshaft cog. Aligh the other different colored link with the mark on the camshaft.
