Normally, you could use another video layer, and something on it to either blur it or just black it out - iMovie doesn't have layers AFAIK, but I came across this tutorial video about making a mask that uses a png image to fool iMovie that it's a title - although the sample is a bit more extreme, it should give you an idea of how to place a blocked image over the area you want taken out...
