And to answer myself.

1] lsof <image_that's_being_cloned> && kill that process

2] being slow ~ since I wanted to keep format as a source, why not to
just % cp; instead qemu and convert? This one I don't understand.

/usr/bin/qemu-img convert -f qcow2 -O qcow2 <src> <trgt>
--- SNIP ---

But it surely does explain why is it "so" slow, because % cp; is matter
of seconds.

Oh well, everything is good now :)
