An unofficial qemu-users mailing list is here:

You won't find much there yet.

Have you looked at the qemu-doc.html file:

-net tap[,vlan=n][,name=name][,fd=h][,ifname=name]
    Connect the host TAP network interface name to VLAN n, use the
network script file to configure it and the network script dfile to
deconfigure it. If name is not provided, the OS automatically provides
one. fd=h can be used to specify the handle of an already opened host
TAP interface. The default network configure script is /etc/qemu-ifup
and the default network deconfigure script is /etc/qemu-ifdown. Use
script=no or downscript=no to disable script execution. Example:

         qemu linux.img -net nic -net tap

    More complicated example (two NICs, each one connected to a TAP device)

         qemu linux.img -net nic,vlan=0 -net tap,vlan=0,ifname=tap0 \
         -net nic,vlan=1 -net tap,vlan=1,ifname=tap1
