I use tls boot on my mac.  You need to copy the kernel somewhere and have the usual plan9.ini file as initrd, and give a 512-byte file as nvram.

qemu-system-x86_64 \
	-machine accel=hvf \
	-cpu host \
	-smp sockets=1,cores=2,threads=1 \
	-m 1024 \
	-nographic \
	-drive file=/opt/9/nvram,if=virtio,index=0,media=disk,format=raw \
	-nic user,mac=99:66:11:22:33:44,model=virtio-net-pci,ipv6=off,hostname=apple,domainname=9core,hostfwd=tcp: \
	-kernel /opt/9/9pc64 \
	-initrd /opt/9/plan9.ini
