As you have probably noticed, DayZ doesn't make use of Space (which is used in ArmA 2). I'd suggest mapping this button to one of options available in DayZ. Personally I moved voice chat to [ALT] and free look to [SPACE], thanks to which the latter one is more comfortable and I don't have to turn [CAPS LOCK] on and off while speaking with other players. Map this button as you wish.
