Hmmmm so in that case the QEMU device model isn't quite right - interesting.
It looks like the Beige G3 didn't even come with Open Firmware. I personally think this Macintosh model is more trouble than it is worth. It can only support up to Mac OS 10.2.
My suggestion is to start emulating a newer Macintosh. I propose the G3 iMac. It can support both the classic Mac OS and OS X. It also did come with Open Firmware and more people are likely have one given the fast of how popular they were in the day.
