A lot of graphical programs support an option for setting the geometry of its window as a command line parameter, usually -geo. Read the manpage for your application for further information, but the common way to do it is using XsizexYsize+Xoffset+Yoffset as the parameter to the -geo option. This means you would type appname -geo 240x120+0+0 to launch a small window in the top left corner of the screen.

I don't think so !

zulik@linux:~$ gnome-terminal -geo 240x100+0+0
incorrect argument: "240x100+0+0"

on I can't find anything about "-geo" ! :/
