This command line doesn't look right. The -guestfwd option is
expecting the first IP address to be one that the guest can
access (ie which is on the "user mode networking" emulated
subnet, which by default is 10.0.2.x), and the second to be that
of the host that you're redirecting it to, but you've given two
IP addresses which are the same and which are both the loopback
address. I think having the second IP addr be is OK,
but the first is wrong.

If you're trying to make QEMU cause guest OS accesses to to be redirected, there is no way to do that.
Loopback connections are handled entirely within the guest
OS and never go out to the network. All QEMU can do is
work with the packets that go out of the emulated network card.

(Also, just to check, -guestfwd is for "when the guest OS
connects to, really connect it to external
server address X port Y". If what you wanted was "when
a program on the host connects to host port X, make it
really connect to port Y on the guest", that is -hostfwd.)
