The individual options take precedence, see the code that handles the
"cache=..." option in drive_init():

    value = qemu_opt_get(all_opts, "cache");
    if (value) {
        int flags = 0;
        bool writethrough;

        if (bdrv_parse_cache_mode(value, &flags, &writethrough) != 0) {
            error_report("invalid cache option");
            return NULL;
        }

        /* Specific options take precedence */
        if (!qemu_opt_get(all_opts, BDRV_OPT_CACHE_WB)) {
            qemu_opt_set_bool(all_opts, BDRV_OPT_CACHE_WB,
                              !writethrough, &error_abort);
        }
        if (!qemu_opt_get(all_opts, BDRV_OPT_CACHE_DIRECT)) {
            qemu_opt_set_bool(all_opts, BDRV_OPT_CACHE_DIRECT,
                              !!(flags & BDRV_O_NOCACHE), &error_abort);
        }
        if (!qemu_opt_get(all_opts, BDRV_OPT_CACHE_NO_FLUSH)) {
            qemu_opt_set_bool(all_opts, BDRV_OPT_CACHE_NO_FLUSH,
                              !!(flags & BDRV_O_NO_FLUSH), &error_abort);
        }
        qemu_opt_unset(all_opts, "cache");
    }
