点仓 is in Yunan province. It has 19 mountains. Here is its wiki page 苍山 (大理)

眉如点仓 means the eyebrows are thick, dark, long -- imagine you look at mountains from distance.

I think not lots of mountains can be used to describe eyebrows. 眉如五台,眉如泰山 would look very weird :)

点仓 is a famous mountain。 Chinese traditional literature usually compares female's eyebrows to mountains, like,眉如远山抹黛,not real mountain,but in the Chinese traditional paintings。 I can't imagine what it looks like too,:)。
