Well, it may not be technically unit-testing, but the common style we
follow in this case is to create a test (that is run as part of 'make
check') which simply launches the peer (via ARM), runs the tests, and
then stops the peer.  For multi-peer tests, we have the testbed API (C)
or the gnunet-testbed-profiler (shell scripts, etc).

But aside from this slightly more evolved setup/teardown, it is best
practice to write such tests to try to achieve code coverage, just like
you might do with unit tests.
