You can use 115200 as line speed to speedup the console a bit.

'-serial stdio' might be more convenient.

Which guest is this?  On modern linux distros (anything systemd-based)
you should automatically get a login prompt on the serial line in case
it is configured as console.  Older systems need manual configuration
for that.  Could also be the system simply hangs here.

Try adding "ignore_loglevel" and "drm.debug=0x07" to the kernel command
