I think I'm missing something about what you're trying to do. Can't
you either use xsl:for-each:

  <xsl:for-each select="$lookup">
    <xsl:value-of select="@id" />

or xsl:apply-templates:

  <xsl:apply-templates select="$lookup" />

with a template matching row elements:

<xsl:template match="row">
    <xsl:value-of select="@id" />

By the way, since what you actually want to get are the field elements
whose name is 'Position', based on their value, a better key might be:

<xsl:key name="lookup" match="field[@name = 'Position']" use="."/>

Then instead of using:

  <xsl:variable name="lookup"
    select="key('lookup', $position)/field[@name='Position']"/>

You could just do:

  <xsl:variable name="lookup" select="key('lookup', $position)" />
