They are created where you tell Oracle to create it. If you don't give a path it is current directory.
C:\>orapwd file=x password=x entries=10

C:\>dir x
 Directory of C:\

10/12/08  12:23 PM             2,560 x
               1 File(s)          2,560 bytes
               0 Dir(s)  18,772,480,000 bytes free

If they didn't you'd receive either an error message either the usage message.

The target location is %ORACLE_HOME%\database.
You can move them there.
But you have to rename them, correct name on Windows is PWD<SID>.ORA
