Are you using SDL or VNC to access the guest?

If SDL, then I think clicking the window will "grab" the mouse and
keyboard to allow you to enter these sorts of things.

Since this is just qemu I expect this might also work:
Although you might need to manually enable the monitor somehow.

If you are using VNC then I think it depends on the client, some have a
menu item to send various special keys, if yours doesn't then you could
try another. (I'm not being intentionally vague I just don't actually
have a specific one to recommend, sorry)
