Tab delimited sound like a text file, cell sounds like the data type you can covert to a matrix with cell2mat. Which is it? And what have you tried already? What errors are you getting?

Read your data and store into x, y, u, v .
uF = scatteredInterpolant(x, y, u);
vF = scatteredInterpolant(x, y, v);
[X, Y] = ndgrid( linspace(min(x), max(x)), linspace(min(y), max(y)));
U = uF(X, Y);
V = vF(X, Y);
contourf(X, Y, U);
contourf(X, U, V);
