Since retirement income from a foreign country is considered unearned income is it taxed and if so where

Yes, it's taxed.  The Pension income will be entered in the Retirement Plans and Social Security section.  Select the first option 1099-R, IRAs, 401(k), early withdrawals.  If you did not receive a 1099-R, then create a Substitute 1099-R when prompted.

Remember to report all income in U.S. Dollars.
