There is no support for capability filtering with the add_meta_box()

I'm pretty sure that just not registering the metabox when the logged-in
user shouldn't have access will work decently. In whatever function you are
using to register the metabox add a current_user_can('CAP_TO_CHECK') and if
it is false exit the function before doing the metabox registration.
