I don't know about best debut album of all time, but IMO this year's best debut album is Bloc Party's Silent Alarm.

It's still hard for me to believe Funeral is The Arcade Fire's first album. There are great debuts like Guns N Roses, Hendrix, etc., but I don't know if I've ever heard anything so sophisitcated and majestic from a band on its first outing. The Velvet Underground had a landmark debut but I can't say that it's as moving as Funeral.

Funeral is probably not my favorite debut album (that might go to Liz Phair's Exile in Guyville), but at this moment I'd have to say it's the best/most accomplished, or in a really close tie with Patti Smith's Horses, which is also pretty damned phenomenal.

Seriously, it would probably be Definitely Maybe by Oasis.

Apart from Elvis Costello, U2 and The Jimi Hendrix Experience (whose debut album was Are You Experienced and not something self-titled), I think these are amazing as well:

Spearhead - Home
Urban Dance Squad - Mental Floss For The Globe

Of course the answer if My Aim is True - Elvis Costello.

But a close close second is Murmur - R.E.M.

DJ Shadow - Endtroducing

Sigur Ros had a great U.S. debut (Ajetus Byrjun), but I guess they actually had another album first with limited release.

Too bad Radiohead started with Pablo Honey

What about The Arcade Fire's self-titled EP? Does that count as a debut? It has all original material, and is long enough in my opinion to count as a full length release.
