Your version of libvirt (as well as QEMU and virt-manager, I assume)
is fairly old, and aarch64 support specifically has seen quite a few
improvements in the meantime. On my Fedora 31 laptop, which has

  qemu-system-aarch64-4.2.0-2.fc31.x86_64
  libvirt-5.10.0-2.fc31.x86_64
  virt-manager-2.2.1-2.fc31.noarch

I can run the above and, after some time, get a login prompt on the
serial console.
