Which coordinates exactly do you mean? What do you want to achieve?

The process is a bit of trial and error as it's difficult to predict how it looks like. However, if you have a tool with which you can measure pixel distances you should be able to get a good hint how your coords have to be.

Here an example for our sample house:

The red dot is the pivot point of the building. Any smoke and animation coordinates will be relative to this pixel. The blue pixel is where we want to have our smoke. You now have to measure the distance from the red to the blue pixel. Here it's marked with the blue region.
