You must also add the CPU type for Mips QEMU. For Mips 32 R2 this would be:

  -M malta -cpu P5600

(Unrelated, I usually also set: -nographic -monitor none -serial stdio
That gives you the output directly on the console, no extra windows.)

Please have a look at the conf/Makeconf.boot.example which provides a
working QEMU configurations for various platforms. I strongly recommend
copying it to conf/Makeconf.boot and then adapting it to your needs. It
makes life a lot easier and serves as a handy reminder what your
favorite options are.

Kind regards
