You can't use Qantas points to upgrade on anything but Qantas (not EK and not oneworld).

Flight reward bookings for all Oneworld partner airlines can now be done via the Qantas website.However, you're right in that no upgrades are possible on Malaysia Airlines using Qantas Points. Points-based upgrades using Qantas Points aren't exclusive to Qantas flights though: you can also upgrade Aircalin and selected LATAM flights when travelling on a QF flight number.
Thanks for the info!

Also if you go via Singapore you will find that the Sin/Kul leg will be on Jetstar Asia and most likely will not have a Business Class Configuration.
