Given the large number of Python users familiar with SQL compared to those familiar with Haskell, I think we'd do wise to pick a different keyword instead of 'where'. I can't think of one right now though.
Taking a cue from mathematics, how about "given"?
c = sqrt(a*a + b*b) given: a = retrieve_a() b = retrieve_b()
Or if we'd rather overload an existing keyword than add a new one, "with" reads well too.
