int64_t should be enough, but I don't know if size_t is large enough on
all platforms.

I believe it's going to be either one of those cases:

* If you are absolutely sure SIZE_MAX >= INT64_MAX on all platforms,
  please explain why (and maybe add a QEMU_BUILD_BUG_ON?). (I don't
  think this will be the case)
* If SIZE_MAX < INT64_MAX is possible but you believe
  size <= SIZE_MAX is always true here, please explain why (and maybe
  add an assert()).
* Otherwise, we need to set an appropriate error if size > SIZE_MAX
  or change the type of qemu_file_getlength(). What about making it
