Clear[f, g]
Block[{k, x, z},
g[k_] = Function[{z}, Evaluate@Integrate[k x, {x, 0, z}]];
f = Function[{k, z}, g[k] /@ z];
]
f[3, {0.1, 0.5, 0.9}]

{0.015, 0.375, 1.215}

(That version Integrates in advance and may be faster than others.)

or

f = Function[{k, upper}, NIntegrate[k x, {x, 0, #}] & /@ upper];
f[3, {0.1, 0.5, 0.9}]

{0.015, 0.375, 1.215}

or

Clear[f]
f[k_, limits_List] :=
Block[{x}, NIntegrate[k x, {x, 0, #}] & /@ limits]
f[3, {0.1, 0.5, 0.9}]

{0.015, 0.375, 1.215}

or

Clear[f]
f[k_, limits_List] := NIntegrate[k x, {x, 0, #}] & /@ limits
f[3, {0.1, 0.5, 0.9}]

{0.015, 0.375, 1.215}
