The loose coax goes to a small connector on the QVSS video board. If
you look carefully, you see that the connector is also coax. The cable
socket is parallel to the plane of the board, and perpendicular to the
long edge at the handle end.
This means you have monochrome video, but that's not all bad. It's
good that you still have the cable, it is easily lost and was hard to
get a replacement even when the MicroVAX was current production.
