I use the following

#! /bin/bash
sudo x86_64-softmmu/qemu-system-x86_64 \
    --enable-kvm \
    -m 4G,maxmem=20G,slots=2 \
    -smp sockets=2,cores=2 \
    -numa node,nodeid=0,cpus=0-1,mem=4G -numa node,nodeid=1,cpus=2-3,mem=0G \
    -kernel /home/dhildenb/git/linux/arch/x86_64/boot/bzImage \
    -append "console=ttyS0 rd.shell rd.luks=0 rd.lvm=0 rd.md=0 rd.dm=0" \
    -initrd /boot/initramfs-5.2.8-200.fc30.x86_64.img \
    -machine pc,nvdimm \
    -nographic \
    -nodefaults \
    -chardev stdio,id=serial \
    -device isa-serial,chardev=serial \
    -chardev socket,id=monitor,path=/var/tmp/monitor,server,nowait \
    -mon chardev=monitor,mode=readline

to get a cpu-less and memory-less node 1. Never tried with node 0.
