I have tried vnc as Arne suggested, will do some more tests later. I
did not have any luck for the keyboard with -vnc :1 -k sv and
qvncviewer. In addition it is much slower than curses/default.
The window size obtained was: 720x400.

I mean that since the xterm/gnome terminal has to be 80x25, running X
with this window size, will be very low resolution, 640x480. How to
get X running with or without curses in a terminal with a reasonable
resolution, like 1280x1024x16. The qemu man page says one should use -vga
std to be able to use larger resolutions. How?

Keyboard seem to be OK, but åäö etc are dead. Still no working
scrollbar, but alt-2 works! Slower than default, faster than vnc and
no grub boot menu!?

How to get a resolution of 1280x1024x16 or at least 1024x768x16? Do I
have to define this VGA mode in the Gnome teminal, and run qemu from
there with this resolution, and the start X? I should be able to startx
without an xorg.conf file?
