I think what you're really asking is how to plot the vector 
{y_1,...,y_n} against {1,...,n} but to label the x-coordinates with the 
vector {x_1,..,x_n}. If so, here's a way, using your example for x:

    x = {1, 2, 10};
    y = RandomReal[{0, 1}, 3]

    xTicks = Transpose[{Range[Length@x], x}]
    ListPlot[y, PlotStyle -> PointSize[Large],
                Ticks -> {xTicks, Automatic}]

Mathematica automatically scales the x-axis so that it is linear with respect to the x-values, i.e. if x={1,2,10}, then the distance between the second and third element will be eight times longer than the distance between the second and first element. I would like the distances to be of equal length.
