Please take a look at the following command:

nova boot --flavor m1.large --block-device source=image,id=5524dc31-fabe-47b5-95e7-53d915034272,dest=volume,size=24,shutdown=remove,bootindex=0 MyThing --nic net-id=087a89bf-b864-4208-9ac3-c638bb1ad1cc

It is booting an instance from an image and also creating a volume from Cinder. is there any way I can define the Volume Type of the volume?

If not, how does it know what volume type to choose?

you can use --volume-type option while creating the volume similarly, during nova boot, you can specify the volume type using vda=<volume-id>:<volume-type>:<volume-size>
