-readconfig and -writeconfig are documented badly.  They use an INI file

Unfortunately, it covers only a subset of the command line options.

The (flawed!) QMP command query-command-line-options currently shows
exactly the covered ones.

I second Laszlo's recommendation to check out existing solutions such as
libvirt before rolling your own.
