Change axis limits according to your need
if you need only values 4 to 7
xlim([4 7])
how can i know the limits?
just look at your values and think about the area that you want to see

To expand on the above answer, in addition to xlim, ylim is also an option, or you can wrap both together with the axis function. Check out this page for examples!

Just to clarify, when you say "like a map", you don't mean it's a map axis (Mapping Toolbox), do you? Cropping a map axis is much more complicated than just changing the x/y limits in a standard axis.
