v.unpack uses a simple check to verify that the data you want to import 
is in the same projection system as the location. It does so by checking 
the PROJ_INFO file that sits in the PERMANENT mapset. But cartesian 
(i.e. un projected) locations do not have such a file, thus the error.

This means that in its current state v.unpack cannot import data into a 
xy-location which I would consider a bug that should be reported in the 
bug tracker.
