Does running the following command transfer any data to any cloud or external

No. The image stays on the computer on which this command is run.

Does this application work as a completely standalone application?
I have no idea what that means. If you mean it is separate from
qemu-system-<arch>, then yes, but it's usually part of the same

Note that on Debian-based GNU/Linux systems, qemu-img is in the
separate package qemu-utils along with qemu-nbd, qemu-io, ivshmem etc.
