If you only use one 'terminal' line and list both terminals there, the one
listed first is used as a default...

serial --unit=0 --speed=9600
terminal --timeout=5 serial console # this defaults to serial console

serial --unit=0 --speed=9600
terminal --timeout=5 console serial # this would default to VGA console
