You don't actually need any cloning for that. You can simply extend the
size of the image with:

   dd if=/dev/zero of=hurd.img count=1 bs=1 seek=6000M

(As Thomas already said, you have to resize the actual filesystem

I doubt a Hurd ext2fs partition is any different for CloneZilla than a
Linux one. Your problem here is with qemu images, not with Hurd.
