Would you expect to able to run kqemu, when the architecture is
different between the host and guest?

The point of kqemu is that some instructions in the guest can be run
natively on the host cpu. Unless there's some special support in kqemu
for switching backwards and forwards between 32 and 64 mode, that's not
going to work.
