I assume you want the geometry of gnuplot windows changed, not the
size of the terminal where octave runs.

gnuplot honors .Xresources file, so you can add 

gnuplot*geometry:               1024x768
gnuplot*background:             black

lines to it, then run "xrdb ~/.Xresources" or restart X11 and you done.
(see "man gnuplot" for more details)
I do not recommend changing background to black though -- you would need
to change all other defaults to get a readable plots.

Other options is to put into .octaverc

where "mygnuplot" is the name of the simple shell script

gnuplot -bg black -geometry 1024x768

This way you do not need to mess with X11. 
You would need to restart octave for changes to this file
to take effect.
