If you have performed a make install, a default configuration file
should have been copied to the default directory for config files.

the exact location of the configuration file depends on compile time
configuration options, so it might differ, but the tarball defaults to

/usr/local/etc/unbound/unbound.conf

The format of the configuration file is described in the unbound.conf(5)
man page. An online version is available here:
