I don't think it is actually a word in the English language.

qintar - an Albanian currency
qiviut - the undercoat of a musk-ox
qoph - a letter in the Hebrew alphabet
qhare - a fancy way of spelling Rohit's name

>[double bonus points: origin of 'cabotage' ?]

from the French "caboter" - to sail along the coast.
