Help Options:
  -h, --help                      Show help options
  --help-all                      Show all help options
  --help-terminal                 Show terminal options
  --help-window-options           Show per-window options


~/ > gnome-terminal --help-window-options
  gnome-terminal [OPTION...]

Window options; if used before the first --window or --tab argument, 
sets the default for all windows:
  --show-menubar                  Turn on the menubar
  --hide-menubar                  Turn off the menubar
  --maximize                      Maximise the window


I think you want to start it like this:

gnome-terminal --maximize
