I have an isolation valve which in the Geometric network looks like this

as the flow is towards the valve so how to give terminal for this isolation valve in the Utility network.

For terminal configurations where that aren't directional, the terminal assignments are often arbitrary, so you just assign the terminals on a first-come, first-served basis. For devices like pumps or pressure regulators, you would look at the inlet and outlet pressures of the device and match them with their corresponding pipe.

Secondly, water distribution is a highly looped system so you can't rely on the digitized direction to indicate any kind of flow (and even if you could, a closed device would always be downstream of two lines).
