Should this option be checked if you have an unlimited plan?

I was wondering the same thing it seems odd that it is "Off" by default. There are options as follows:

Domestic Voice (Default: On)
Domestic Data, Requires Domestic Voice (Default: Off)
International Voice (Default Off)
International Data, Requires International Voice (Default: Off)

A bit cryptic. Also note that the word "roaming" is used nowhere with "domestic data" and it is not under a "roaming" menu.

Roaming just allows you to receive data/voice from other carriers for which Sprint has agreements with. They don't want you to roam because it costs them money for you to do that, especially if you do it a lot. I would enable it so you can receive data/voice in areas with lacking coverage. Don't worry about how much you roam until Sprint notifies you. It usually requires several tens of GB's, regularly, to receive a notice from Sprint informing to cease.
