You want to start unclutter with your X session scripts (what depends on how you start X11 and with what session, ie. KDE, Gnome or whatever)

Because that is totally not X11's job, there's a session manager protocol, but I doubt unclutter opts into it.

KMail? KDE? "kcmshell[4|5] autostart" (the actual kcmshell command name depends on your distro and KDE version, sorry about that) - it's a system settings module.
Just add some "pkill unclutter; unclutter -foo -bar" there.
