Actually, this is quite new site. ;-)

You can use "targetcli <directory> <command> [<args> ...]" format, so
you can call e.g.

targetcli /backstores/user:zbc create name=foo size=10G cfgstring=model-HM/zsize-256/conv-1@/mnt/nvme/disk0.raw

Oops, QEMU hide the detail.

In this case, you can try exposing the ZBC device via iSCSI.

On the host:
(after creating the ZBC backstores)
# sudo targetcli /iscsi create
Created target
Created TPG 1.
Global pref auto_add_default_portal=true
Created default portal listening on all IPs (, port 3260.

(WARN: Allow any node to connect without any auth)
# targetcli /iscsi/${TARGET}/tpg1 set attribute generate_node_acls=1
Parameter generate_node_acls is now '1'.
( or you can explicitly allow an initiator)
# TCMU_INITIATOR=iqn.2018-07....
# targecli /iscsi/${TARGET}/tpg1/acls create ${TCMU_INITIATOR}

(for each backend)
# targetcli /iscsi/${TARGET}/tpg1/luns create /backstores/user:zbc/foo
Created LUN 0.

Then, you can login to the iSCSI on the KVM guest like:

# iscsiadm -m discovery -t st -p $HOST_IP,1
# iscsiadm -m node -l -T ${TARGET}
Logging in to [iface: default, target:, portal:,3260]
Login to [iface: default, target:, portal:,3260] successful.
