The man page seems clear enough.

unrtf [options] [file....]

anything between [] is optional. And the file.... means it can be one file or a list of files. So just running the following command should work:

unrtf myfile.rtf

Ofcourse you should make sure the location of the unrtf file is in your path and that the x bit is set.
