To use kvm, you need to pass -enable-kvm to qemu-system-arm command

You would run the following command:

qemu-system-arm -smp 2 -m 1024 -cpu cortex-a15 -M vexpress-a15 \
	-kernel ./zImage -dtb ./vexpress-v2p-ca15-tc1.dtb \

	-drive if=sd,cache=writeback,file=kvm.qcow2 \
	-nographic -enable-kvm

Thanks for the help Riku, I've got this work reliably now. The only thing I had to change was the network setup, I have openvswitch running on the Cubietruck (it makes things easier) so I had to add these lines:

-net tap,ifname=linaro-test,script=/root/bin/ovs-ifup,downscript=/root/bin/ovs-ifdown


-net nic,model=lan9118,id=linaro-test

The scripts just add and remove the ports from the internal vswitch.
