[OE-core] [PATCH 2/2] scripts/runqemu: Using a cpio* rootfs has no special network

When booting a system with the rootfs being of cpio* type the networking
setup should still work the same as for all other root filesystem types.
This change removes the clearing of the NETWORK_CMD variable allowing
for the slirp/tap setup to be provided to QEMU.
