You need to look at the tile ram as all the walls and dots are tiles. The top right hand corner of the playable tilemap area starts at $4040, the next 32 bytes refer to the 32 rows of the right hand column. The column to the left of the right hand column starts at $4060 and so on (28 columns or 32 rows).

Bottom left of playable tile ram area is at address $43bf

You may also need to look at the pallete ram where a byte (lower nibble only counts) matching each tile exists to state which pallete is used to draw the tile. just add $400 to the Tile ram address to get the equivalent pallete address.
