It isn't just the kernel.
I mounted the root image via a loop device, and I looked at the
pacman data for a random package, zlib.  It's x86_64 as well.

I built an i686 netinstall here, using the latest archiso and the latest
configs/syslinux-iso, and that booted fine under qemu.

I have no idea what happened.
