You're going to want something like this in your ipnat configuration:

rdr int0 0/0 port 80 -> port 3128

Where int0 is your internal interface name, and is your
internal interface IP address. You'll also want this in your squid.conf:

http_port 8080
httpd_accel_host virtual
httpd_accel_port 80
httpd_accel_with_proxy  on

Full documentation here:
httpd_accel_uses_host_header on
