If the user wants to create a chardev of type socket but forgets to give a
host= option, qemu_opt_get returns NULL. This NULL pointer is then fed into
strlen a few lines below without a check which results in a segfault.
This fixes it.

While this correctly fixes the segfault, it doesn't output any error
message. The best would probably be to fold that with the test of
"port", as the error message already mentions "host and/or port".
