If you run emacs under X windows, it will open its own window.
Otherwise, it will run in whatever window you started it in. But you
can always open a new terminal window before running emacs.
By the way, emacs will work much better if you run it from a mintty
terminal or rxvt terminal rather than the window you get by clicking on
the cygwin icon. If you don't know what this means, just install the
mintty and/or rxvt package, and you'll get start menu shortcuts for them.
