At first glance this looks like a coreboot issue, so I would ask on
the coreboot mailing list.  Also, you may wish to retry without the
q35 machine type as I'm not sure how well coreboot supports it.

If you think it is a SeaBIOS issue, then please retry with native
SeaBIOS (ie, remove the -bios part of the command line).
