kvmtool: ARM: fix initrd functionality

lkvm -i is currently broken on ARM/ARM64.
We should not try to convert smaller-than-4GB addresses into 64-bit
big endian and then stuff them into u32 variables if we expect to read
anything other than 0 out of it.
Adjust the type to u64 to write the proper address in BE format into
the /chosen node (and also match the address size we formely posted)
and let Linux thus read the right values.
This fixes initrd functionality for ARM and ARM64 guests.
