Directly from the manpage:

-boot [order=drives][,once=drives][,menu=on|off]
           Specify boot order drives as a string of drive letters. Valid drive letters depend on the target achitecture. The x86 PC uses: a, b (floppy 1 and
           2), c (first hard disk), d (first CD-ROM), n-p (Etherboot from network adapter 1-4), hard disk boot is the default. To apply a particular boot
           order only on the first startup, specify it via once.

           Interactive boot menus/prompts can be enabled via menu=on as
far as firmware/BIOS supports them. The default is non-interactive boot.

                   # try to boot from network first, then from hard disk
                   qemu -boot order=nc

So this should work?? Don't know. Even does not work with not specifying

PXE netboot not booting localboot from virtio-disk
