I was having the same problem, when I have implemented search in my
map tile server.
Actually these are not the latitudes longitudes, I think these are the
x and y co-ordinates.
And these need to be converted on latitude and longitude for using it.

I have also made the function too convert x,y co-ordinates into lat.
long., but unfortunately I have lost that data.
But I will try to find that and will reply here back If found.

Hope it will help you.
