The mappings from Java classes to XPath types aren't defined in any
standard, they depend on the product you are using.

Saxon 7.x, which implements XSLT 2.0 and XPath 2.0, will map an array of
strings to an XPath sequence of strings. But XPath 1.0 doesn't support
sequences of strings in its type system, so it's unlikely that an XSLT
1.0 processor will do the same. Your best bet would be to construct an
XML document in which the strings are represented as elements, and then
pass the root node of the document as a parameter.
