There is a smart script in scripts/ dir that you could use something 
like this

runqemu /var/oe-core/tmp-eglibc/deploy/images/qemuarm/zImage-qemuarm.bin 

and it will setup everything (even networking) for you

make sure that its run in shell where you have sourced setup environment 
of either oe-core or angstrom
Hope that helps
