I don't have any experience with the Mac Mini specifically, but either 
i386 or amd64 should work. As http://www.netbsd.org/ports/amd64/ says, 
"NetBSD/amd64 is a port to the AMD64 family of processors and supports 
all other CPUs that implement the 64bit AMD64 architecture. These 
currently include AMD Opteron, AMD Athlon64, and Intel CPUs with the 
EM64T extension."

The Intel Core i5/i7 in the Mac Mini includes the EM64T extension.
