So I don't know if I did computation wrong or I used wrong f(x,y) at the beginning???
If the region is a square or rectangle (and the edges are parallel to the x and y axes), yes, x and y are each uniform. Otherwise, x and y are not uniform. (In special cases one of them might be uniform, but often neither would be uniform, and I don't think it would be possible for both to be uniform.)
