I recently started to get my linux system working in
qemu-system-aarch64. Important is that you use virtio drivers and
the right startup commands.
Something like this should work:
qemu-system-aarch64 -nographic -M virt -cpu cortex-a57 -smp 1 \
  -netdev user,id=eth0 -device virtio-net-device,netdev=eth0 \
  -device virtio-blk-device,drive=vda \ 
  -drive file=qemu-aarch64.img,if=none,id=vda

I am using Qemu 2.1.

good luck
