The only way I can think of is check the tooltip for a mouseover unit when it pops up and query it for a UnitGUID(). This is if the game triggers the tooltip with tooltip:SetUnit() instead of just tooltip:SetText() internally. It does this with some objects, but not all.

You may also check on events such as UPDATE_MOUSEOVER_UNIT.
