I don't think you can do that for the moment. Debian's riscv64 port uses
compressed instructions, so it needs a CPU supporting compressed
instructions. There is no reason why Debian could not have in the future
a non-compressed port, but this is currently not the case. Sorry!

(maybe it's not even that complicated to devise a non-compressed port
having already a compressed one available: in line of principle you
could just recompile each package disabling the generation of compressed
instructions, and you wouldn't have to bootstrap again; still not a
weekend project, and who knows the bugs that it would expose... I am
definitely not able to advise you on how to implement that!)
