You can do this in different way, depends up on your setup. I am assuming you are having single type of storage. So, create availability-zone and put the block under it. When creating volume do the following

cinder create --display-name test 1 --availability-zone myzone

If you are having multiple type of storage, you can choose --volume-type option
