Public bug reported:

The qemu vhdx driver does not support type 2 (differencing) vhdx images
(usually stored with file extension .avhdx). This means that any hyperv
images with snapshots are not supported by qemu-img. It would be great
to be able to convert to a new qcow image from a backing + set of
differencing images from hyperv, and/or convert an individual
differencing vhdx image to a qcow2 image with a backing file specified.
