The QEMU memory interface is capable of supporting Flash emulation.
As far as I know, no ready solutions exist, so you need to do this from

The data sheet of the Flash device you want to emulate documents the
commands the
device understands.  You need to implement the finite state machine
which interprets those commands.

A high-fidelity emulation will also simulate Flash erase and programming
