Well, using a Cygwin ispell with a native Windows build of Emacs is
not exactly the normal use case, either.  Why don't you use a native
Windows build of ispell (or a Cygwin build of Emacs)?

Can you propose a patch and test it in your setup?  Or would you like
me to propose a patch for you to test?

ispell.el used to request a lot of such manual configury, but nowadays
it attempts to glean such information from the spellers themselves, as
far as possible.  It would have worked for you out of the box, were it
not for the fact that Emacs doesn't understand Cygwin file names (if I
understand correctly the nature of your problem).  So going back to
manual configuration would be a step in the wrong direction, IMO.
