Try using cpp.cxxFlags or cpp.driverFlags instead. cpp.cppFlags has a
different meaning. See

This is a bug in the Conan Qbs generator which still exports compiler
options to cpp.cppFlags. See https://github.com/conan-io/conan/issues/4730

If you find the time to fix
that would be awesome. It's just two letters.
