SVM is a two-class supervised learning technique, and Matlab does just that. For multi-classes you might want to apply successively 2-classes learning processes. See relevant papers for how to use correct strategy ("winner takes all" is the most popular).

There are several generalization of SVM allowing multiclasse classification, but I don't think Matlab has any of those technique.
