I have just updated my device from 2.3.5 to 4.3. The installation instructions didn't mention what I should clear after upgrade (dalvik, data, battery stats, etc). So should I clear any of them?

Not a bad idea to clear data, if you have a backup.

At the least, I'd suggest you clear Cache and Davlik. Battery stats don't matter much.

Should I have cleared them before flashing the rom? If I clear them now will I have to reflash the phone?

No you can clear it after too, only data will be cleared, but the rom will still be on your phone.

I would advise you to clear data, dalvik cache and cache partition between gingerbread and ics (or any new major release for that matter), as well as wipe battery stats and fix permissions.
Between small updates within the same version just clearing dalvik cache is enough.
