Run the command as usual

    M-x align-regexp RET 

Let Emacs tell you what the lisp representation of it is.  Do

   M-x list-command-history RET

you will find your very recent command there.

Copy, paste that stuff, do some modifications for the region portion and
your are done.


You can also get the lisp representation with

    M-x repeat-complex-command RET


until you find what you want.
