Postfix probably tries to read 
/var/spool/postfix/run/spamass-milter/postfix/sock as I do believe the 
path is relative to the spool directory.

I don't know exactly about ownership and file modes as I don't use 
spamass-milter myself, but I would suggest a simplefied version of the 
path you choose, unix:/spamass-milter/postfix.sock
You have to create the directory yourself, including the right 
ownership/rights. (both postfix as spamass-milter needs access, how 
exactly is left to the exercise of the reader:-))

Don't forget to update the milter config accordingly to the full path,

spamd is the daemonized version of spamassassin, spamc is the client, 
the milter uses spamc to connect to spamd.

Good luck,
