The right answer here depends on whether disk.img contains a partition
table or not and which partition contains the actual filesystem. If
disk.img has no partition table then "mmcblk0" is correct. If it does
have a partition table then "mmcblk0p<N>" is correct where <N> is the
partition number. IIRC the kernel prints out the partitions as it
discovers them, or you can investigate with fdisk in the host.

You should also check that your kernel includes the relevant filesystem.
