to /etc/apt/apt.conf should do it. I have't tried this, mind you.
In general, where you see a mention in a manpage of a "Configuration
Item", it is entries such as the above that are being described. See
apt.conf(5) for more. Each apt utility's configuration items are
described in its individual manpage: apt-cdrom(8) in this case.
The reason Debian uses /cdrom is that the FHS, which Debian tries to
adhere to, specifies that /mnt itself is to be used as a mount point.
