buffer of clusters in a sparse matrix

I have a sparse matrix where I identified different clusters. The value within each cluster is equal, while each cluster has its own unique value. I have 0s as background (outside clusters). Here is an example with clusters 1 and 2:

A=(000002002000
110002222000
111000222200
110000022000
111000000000)

I'd like to use each cluster as "a polygon" and study the value of the outside neighbor pixels (a sort of buffer as in vector data). Obviously in the example it would output 0 as mean all the time, but the point is understanding how to do it, as I have to apply this to another matrix (I work with geolocated data, so I would use the buffer area to find mean values in specific rasters). Is there a way to do that? Also, if so, can I specify the width of this buffer (as number of pixels)?
