That looks like a 64-bit Arm CPU, so QEMU will happily run
both 32-bit and 64-bit x86 guest code on it in both system emulation
and linux-user emulation modes.
If you're asking specifically about limitations in whatever Microsoft's
x86 emulation is, you'd need to ask Microsoft about that, since
it's not a QEMU thing.
