The code snippet above (which I have not further verified) indicates two
busses, named "ide.0" and "ide.1" respectively. So bus=ide.0 or
bus=ide.1 should work, just like pcie.0 works for the built-in PCIe host
bridge.

"ich9-ahci" is the type name of the device, which you can use with
-device and device-add or see in qom-list-types.
