Since the Unix timestamp field is the number of seconds since 1/1/1970, you can create a formula to convert it using the dateadd function:

local numbervar secs := 1151530818; //replace 1151530818 with the unix timestamp field
dateadd("s",secs,date(1970,1,1))

This will return a date field that you can format once you drag the formula onto the report.
If you want it to return a string in the above format you can make your formula this:

local numbervar secs := 1151530818; //replace 1151530818 with the unix timestamp field
totext(dateadd("s",secs,date(1970,1,1)),"MMM-dd-yyyy")
