/var/lib/qubes/appvms/metasploitable/root.img I stopped the command
with Ctrl+C, because the root.img became bigger than the original
file's size. Then I got the following error messages.

Could you post:

[robert@dom0 ~]$ qvm-run --pass-io tempDebian 'ls -lsh

Maybe your raw file is an sparse file. I'm not sure if cat would
handle it fine.

If source is sparse, you can also save it as sparse by piping through dd:

qvm-run --pass-io tempDebian 'cat "/home/user/meta.raw"' | dd conv=sparse

But that way you still cat the WHOLE file and then only resparse it after
the transfer. It will take significantly longer.

Yes, but there's no risk to dom0 with dd, as there is with parsing a guest-created tar file.
