My company provides iMac for us, but I want to work on Ubuntu instead. I am trying to run Ubuntu 20.04 with QEMU. I have to hardware screens. I want two virtual QEMU screens so I can put one on each physical screens. May I know how can I do that?

Below is the script I run QEMU.

-M pc-q35-3.1,accel=hvf,usb=off,vmport=off
-cpu Penryn,kvm=on,vendor=GenuineIntel
-smp 4,sockets=1,cores=2,threads=2
-m 4096
-realtime mlock=off
-rtc base=utc,driftfix=slew
-drive file=/Users/rogerleung/ubuntu.qcow2,if=none,format=qcow2,id=disk0
-device virtio-blk-pci,bus=pcie.0,addr=0x1,drive=disk0
-netdev user,id=net0
-device virtio-net-pci,netdev=net0,bus=pcie.0,addr=0x2
-device virtio-keyboard-pci,bus=pcie.0,addr=0x3
-device virtio-tablet-pci,bus=pcie.0,addr=0x4
-device virtio-vga,bus=pcie.0,addr=0x5
