comment Is it possible to declare a local variable without overriding the original for the child processes?
nor is typeset -px a viable way of saving the 'entire environment'. env 123=abc zsh -c 'env;typeset -px'. typeset's output will lack the 123 variable.

You can indeed clash with environment variables by using lowercase variable names. trying running path=1 and running a command or manpath=/dev/null if you have a MANPATH variable set. zsh has a quite a few lowercase shell variables that affects the shell's behavior. zle_bracketed_paste, cdpath, fpath to name a few.

You can run qemu as a unprivileged user by having qemu drop permissions via -runas user or by creating a tap device that is owned by the unprivileged user. ip-tuntap(8) can assign ownership of tuns/taps. among other ways.
