You can use:

IScmService.configurationLocateAncestors(...)

or

IScmService.configurationDetermineAncestorsInHistory(...)  (this will give you the path of a file even if it was recently deleted in the stream - it goes through the change set history to try to find the path where the file used to be).

You will not be able to retrieve a path given a versionable on its own. A file has a pointer to the parent folder (where the pointer is just an itemId or handle), but the name of that parent folder (along with the full path right up to the component root) can only be determined with a context (stream/workspace/baseline).

For example, 'fileA.txt' may be located at '/dirA/dirA2/fileA.txt' in StreamA, and '/dirB/dirB2/dirB3/fileA.txt' in StreamB.
