You didn't mention what your host architecture was.  man qemu mentions a
-k keyboard language option, but says, "This option is only needed where
it is not easy to get raw PC key‐codes (e.g. on Macs, with some X11
servers or with a VNC display). You don’t normally need to use it on
PC/Linux or PC/Windows hosts."  You could try experimenting with that.
