is x the first array of position vector ?
if yes , you can access to position vector in cell center with mesh.C() and in cell face with mesh.Cf() so
volVectorField positionVector=mesh.C();
volScalarField x=positionVector.x();
volScalarField y=positionVector.y();
then source term would be
forAll (x,celli){

i guess some things like above code can help you
