I didn't try running MacOS, but my (Ubuntu's) qemu has:

| $ qemu-system-ppc -M ?
| Supported machines are:
| g3bw       Heathrow based PowerMAC (default)
| mac99      Mac99 based PowerMAC
| prep       PowerPC PREP platform
| ref405ep   ref405ep
| taihu      taihu
| $ qemu-system-ppc64 -M ?
| Supported machines are:
| g3bw       Heathrow based PowerMAC (default)
| mac99      Mac99 based PowerMAC
| prep       PowerPC PREP platform
| ref405ep   ref405ep
| taihu      taihu
| $
