There is no Trunk port configuration on the ESXi server.

Trunking is done on the Physical switch port!

VMware KBs:

Sample switch port configuration for VLAN and TRUNK MODE (1006628)

Sample configuration of virtual switch VLAN tagging (VST Mode) (1004074)

You would add one of more network interfaces to a vSwitch.

What are you wanting to do with a trunk port ?

If you want to read more on networking in VMware ESX/ESXi, then I recommend the following:-

I would also recommend reading through the Networking Sections of the following guides to gain a better understanding of Networking in VMware ESX/ESXi.
