As Jonas said. Plus they mentioned in on their web site (or wikipedia)
that Qemu is used to emulate the network cards and sound cards etc...

Quote from wikipedia:
"In January 2007, VirtualBox was released. It uses some of QEMU's
virtual hardware devices and has a built-in dynamic recompiler that is
based on QEMU."
