If you're looking for a easy spot to start playing DF in, here's my advice:

Magma Avoid Adds temptation to flood your fort with lava, not to mention fire imps and other fire creature harassments.
Aquifer Avoid Usually above the rock you need to get at, and is hard to penetrate
Biome Temperate Get Something mild, not hot or cold. Avoid savannah to avoid elephants. Colder means your water freezes over for longer periods.
Wood Recommended Heavily Forested
Plants Recommended Plants are food, so pick a spot with some or lots
Flux Recommended having a flux layer is a good idea
Metal Cross your fingers there's lots of iron and other ores... especially if you get a flux layer
River Avoid Carp.
Brook Recommended Water.
