I did a count on this forum, and seems like most people there mine with ethminer. I've always been using claymore miner which has the -ewal option to provide my ether address, but there's no equivalent option in ethminer program. So where does my mining reward go to ?

ethminer has the --farm option which allows you to set where your miner fetches work from. If you're solo mining (the default option works for that), then you configure the address from your Ethereum client (geth, parity, etc.). If it's a pool, you use the settings provided by the pool so that it knows where to send payment for work.
