Something like this may work, building off of Luc's suggestion. If this is for a single ESXi host and your CSV Datastore column name was "name"

connect-viserver -Server "hostname here"

$esxcli = Get-EsxCli -VMHost "hostname here"

$csv = Import-Csv c:\path\to\your.csv

foreach ($row in $csv) {

$esxcli.storage.vmfs.unmap(200, "$($row.name)", $null)

}
