The option for the initrd is '-initrd'.

You don't need a dtb file if you are using the "virt" machine
type, because that machine type will create a suitable DTB
within QEMU to pass to the kernel. You only need it with
arm machine types that are emulating real hardware, like
vexpress-a15. Here it matches how a real boot loader like uboot
works -- uboot loads the kernel, initrd and dtb file.
(A few boards in real hardware, like the raspberry pi, provide
the dtb file with their firmware for the bootloader to pick up,
rather than having the distro ship the dtb alongside the kernel
image file. QEMU's emulation of those boards requires the user
to provide the dtb file to it anyway. The vexpress hardware never
did this in any case, you always had to build a kernel and
a dtb file.)
