You cannot set average cpc. Average CPC is a part of Google Adwords Reports. You can set bids from Max CPC's. Everytime an ad appears for your keywords, the CPC is different. It would normally not be higher than your Max CPC. Average CPC is the average of CPC's charged to the number of times your ads have appeared.


Example is -

Suppose your max cpc is $2.

Your ads have appeared 3 times until now. Thus the CPC would be then

1st time - $1.25

2nd time - $1.54

3rd time - $1.76


Thus the average cpc of this ad is ($1.25+$1.54+$1.76)/3 = $1.51


Hope this example has helped you understand it.
