Nothing specific to Android that I know, so you'll either need to do your own or adapt one of the numerous Java reporting tools that speaks SQL. One missing piece that you'll have to work around is that most reporting apps access a database through a JDBC driver. There is no JDBC driver provided with Android's SQLite.

You might be better off writing your own because you can take advantage of the unique features and limitations of the mobile device, like touch gestures and the screen size. If you want your app to run on both the iPhone and Android, check out Fred Grott's work with hybrid web/local applications.
