Add a chardev to your QEMU command-line (try -serial
unix:/tmp/test.sock,server,nowait). Read the qemu(1) man page for
details on chardevs and all the options.
Inside the guest you need to access the serial port (e.g. /dev/ttyS0 on
Linux but make sure no login tty is running on that port).
On the host you can access the UNIX domain socket given on your QEMU
command-line. That would be /tmp/test.sock in this example.
Also consider using virtio-serial instead of the traditional ISA serial
device. It allows you to add/remove named (e.g. org.myproject.agent.0)
ports at run-time. Search online to find example syntax.
