I believe Qemu defaults to user-net if no ifup is found. My guess is your tun 
device isn't setup properly.

You must setup iptables, I start iptables via init, so I add MASQ rule
iptables -t nat -A POSTROUTING -o eth0 -j MASQUERADE
/etc/rc.d/init.d/iptables save

(this way I don't have to worry about nat after each boot)

And after Qemu is running, root must setup ip_forward. This cannot be done 
with iptables running. I do this via a script called by qemu-ifup>

/etc/rc.d/init.d/iptables stop
echo "1" >&/proc/sys/net/ipv4/ip_forward
/etc/rc.d/init.d/iptables start
