runqemu: fix run from testimage with non-standard DEPLOY_DIR_IMAGE
testimage.bbclass uses runqemu to execute runtime tests on a qemu target, this means that bitbake is already running and `bitbake -e` can't be called to obtain bitbake variables. runqemu tries to work around being unable to read values for bitbake variables by inferring the MACHINE from the DEPLOY_DIR_IMAGE setting, however if a user sets that variable in a manner which doesn't follow the systems expectations (i.e. if running `bitbake -c testimage` against a directory of pre-generated images in a user-specified path) the inferring of the MACHINE name from the DEPLOY_DIR_IMAGE location will fail. It's possible that check_arg_machine() shouldn't cause runqemu to fail and that runqemu should proceed with the user-supplied value even if it can't be verified. This patch simply ensures that a workflow where the user sets DEPLOY_DIR_IMAGE continues to work without changing too much of the runqemu code.
