You can use par("usr") to get the min/max coords of the plot and then
use that. For example, this will plot a red dot in the middle of the
plot area regardless of the coordinates:
plot(1:10) # sample plot
usr <- par("usr")
points(mean(usr[1:2]), mean(usr[3:4]), pch = 20, col = "red") # red dot
See ?par
