Use the offsets/positions from Document::Block with the unpreprocessed 
source code to extract the arguments as strings. The arguments are not 
stored separately to save memory.

You can get the unpreprocessed source code with e.g.

auto *cppModelManager = CppModelManager::instance();
auto *cppEditorDocument = 
if (cppEditorDocument) {
     // Editor is opened and can provide us the source code...
     const QByteArray source = cppEditorDocument->contents();
     const uint end =  block.bytesEnd() - block.bytesBegin();
     qDebug() << "Argument:" << source.mid(block.bytesBegin(), end);
} else {
     // Read source code from disk...

To convert to line/column, document->translationUnit()->getPosition(...) 
should help you.

Note that we are focusing on the clang code model, so in the long run 
the code we are speaking about here will vanish or be replaced.
