I happen to live in the same country :-)

The docker images are only AMD/Intel, but of course can be used to 
cross-compile if the right toolkit is provided.

The QBS builds on the Launchpad PPA are built for amd64, i386, armhf and 
arm64. So, given that the sources for the Docker images are public (see 
https://github.com/mardy/docker-images), I believe i should be easy to 
generate docker images for other architectures.

In my experience, however, cross compiling is always faster.
