how did you create the disk image exactly ? the link you posted
talks about a truncate command, but there is no such command on NetBSD.
I suspect this created a sparse file. This is not supported by
NetBSD dom0. You could use dd to create the image instead:
dd if=/dev/zero of=freebsd.img bs=1m count=256
