Could SeaBIOS fail more cleanly when it detects insufficient RAM?
What would you propose?
Fail POST with panic("Not enough RAM")?
The amount of memory is communicated from QEMU to SeaBIOS via nvram variables. As far as I know, those variables can only communicate ram sizes in 1meg chunks - so there is no way to communicate (and/or detect) a ramsize of under 1 meg.
