[Slackbuilds-users] QEMU

After the last update to qemu I am getting the following warning:
WARNING: Image format was not specified for '/mnt/build/buildvm' and
probing guessed raw.
         Automatically detecting the format is dangerous for raw images,
write operations on block 0 will be restricted.
         Specify the 'raw' format explicitly to remove the restrictions.

Does anyone know where I should "Specify the 'raw' format"?

I use this as my start command:
usr/bin/qemu-system-x86_64 \
-boot c \
-name build \
-cpu qemu64 \
-smp cores=2 \
-enable-kvm \
-m 16G \
-localtime \
-soundhw es1370 \
/mnt/other/Slackware/slackware64-14.1-iso/slackware64-14.1-install-dvd.iso \
-usb \
-usbdevice host:0781:5581 \
-vga vmware \
-hda /mnt/build/buildvm
