Yes, this can be easily done with inline functions (look up Function):

Integrate[1, ##] & @@@ regions

## stands for all the arguments that the function receives.

You may want to consider giving Mathematica some information about the 
variables, e.g. if all of them are reals then use

Assuming[(a|x|y|cx|cy) \[Element] Reals, Integrate[1, ##] & @@@ regions]
