I installed a Linux VM in the virtual box, and inside it I installed the QEMU package and virtualized an AIX 7.2 image. The entire installation went correctly.

But when I try to install an Oracle inside the AIX VM that is virtualized by QEMU, I get a Segmentation fault message.

Start VM Qemu:

ppc64-softmmu/qemu-system-ppc64 -cpu POWER8 \
-machine pseries -m 8192 \
-drive file=hdisk0.qcow2,if=none,id=drive-virtio-disk0 \

You should use qemu-6.1 ,this can install oracle and start it normally.
