It doesn't.
It boots directly a bootloader:
yaboot for Linux,
bootX for Mac OS X...
It never boots a kernel directly, or if it does, that just means that
the bootloader is contained at the start of the OS image.
In that case, using qemu options should be sufficient:
qemu -kernel <xxx> -append <kernel_options>

But you won't be able to boot using a bloc device this way, only boot
from memory:
the OF boot device won't be set. But if the kernel knows where to boot
(like Linux does, using its options), you may succeed.
