This does boot in DOSBOX.
You'll need to set machine=pcjr in dosbox.conf.
I'd recommend setting cpucore to dynamic, and CPU Cycles to something really low, like 275.
Also, the original version used two disks, a booter and a play disk.
You can emulate this by making a duplicate of the image file and, for the sake of this example, naming one KQPCJRa.IMG and the other KQPCJRb.IMG.
Mark KQPCJRa.IMG as read only in your OS.
Then do as Mike suggested and navigate to the image location but instead type:
BOOT KQPCJRa.IMG KQPCJRb.IMG
Once in game you can press CTRL+F4 to swap between the disks.
If you don't do this your image file won't boot the next time you play.

This works fine is DOXBox, just make sure you have "machine=pcjr" set in the DOXBox config file. To start, navigate to the directory KQ1PCJR.IMG and type "BOOT KQ1PCJR.IMG" in the prompt.

Addendum... Back in the PCJr days, games were made with bootable disks, no filesystems. That's why this isn't work. It needs an IBM PCJr or an emulator for the machine to work.
We've been spoiled by Windows and DOS 3.x+. LOL

Yeah. This is some kind of archaic floppy image that doesn't work with DOSBox or any other mounting software under Win 8.1+.

Doesn't work! It's a floppy image and I can't open/access it!
