you can add one more field  for file name in your model eg:.

filename = fields.Char('File Name')

and then you can use this field in .xml to set name of file like,(considering 'xls_report' is binary field that will hold your .xls report)

<field name="xls_report" filename="filename"/> .

From now on your reports will be download with the name you set in that field. (you can have name dependent of your record)
