Actually, first of all, which qemu version are you using?

There is a qemu-iotests test case for qemu-img convert with backing
files and git master passes it for me. However, there was a fix to
qemu-img in July (commit d032044fb97d525ae93fb4c96713a5c467044c17)
concerning conversion with backing files.
