Upload the ISO, install it as you usually would. When you've done whatever
customisations to the installation that you use, clean it up (remove some
history files, remove udev rules etc.) and make a template out of it.

Could take a couple of times to get a hang on it.

Some resources:
http://www.greenhills.co.uk/2013/08/30/creating-ubuntu-templates-for-cloudstack.html
http://shankerbalan.net/blog/cloudstack-centos-template-install-from-iso/

Could be useful to bookmark Shanker Balan's blog, it has a lot of useful
resources for cloudstack
