The values you pass to persp() are expressions to be evaluated in your workspace. Since you don't have variables x, y or z defined, you can't specify range(x), range(y) or range(z) as arguments. (Things are different for the defaults for the parameters: those are evaluated in the local frame set up for the call.)
