To get category image url based on category ID use the fallowing:

// verify that this is a product category page
if ( is_product_category() ){
    global $wp_query;

    // get the query object
    $cat = $wp_query->get_queried_object();

    // get the thumbnail id using the queried category term_id
    $thumbnail_id = get_term_meta( $cat->term_id, 'thumbnail_id', true ); 

    // get the image URL
    $image = wp_get_attachment_url( $thumbnail_id );

    // print the IMG HTML
    echo "<img src='{$image}' alt='' width='762' height='365' />";

When placing a url in to css make sure not to put aditional quotes in background-image: url() as it will brake the link – striping slashes.

If you like to get image instead, you can use:
