Figured out the problem.

QEMU commands apparently don't support wildcards, you have to explicitly name files.

Not sure what I'm doing wrong and the error perplexes me... No other
VM is running but of course the drive should already exist if I'm
pointing to an existing disk image file.

I probably am misunderstanding something...
