I would be shocked if there was a boot option to pass such options to 
mkfs.xfs.  XFS has lots of tunable options, using them all in boot options 
would not make sense to me, even if it wasn't for the fact that different 
file systems may want different mkfs options.

There are XFS options -d for data section, -l for log, and -b for block size.  
Having boot options for all of these would be confusing at best.
