How much memory did you configure for the QEMU system?  It may simply be
-- I've seen this myself -- that the system runs out of memory, as at the
native-install stage (I think at least) swap is not yet configured and
enabled.  What I've been doing is: boot (with -s), MAKEDEV hdWHATEVER in
/dev/ for the swap device, run /hurd/mach-defpager, followed by swapon
/dev/hdWHATEVER.  Does this help?

Yes, that's (unfortunately) a known limitation of the native-install
