What the --network option does is it sets up a user network.  This is
implemented in qemu in userspace (using a thing called SLiRP) and it
doesn't give the appliance a separate network address.

Also it has some limitations:

Nevertheless from guestfish you can test the network using debug
commands.  For example:

 $ guestfish --network -a /dev/null
