The display register also exist on some Qbus machines, such as the
11/83, which have a two digit 7 segment display.

Uh. I/O addresses as such are just addresses. Devices might be similar
between Unibus and Qbus. Depends on the device. There are many Qbus
devices that are similar/compatible with their Unibus counterparts, but
not always. DMA devices are not, for the obvious reason. However, they
can still be "mostly compatible".
The memory management is compatible, so no, memory management is not
All that said, yeah, the second serial port is most likely not at
177570. But that can be checked in the manuals...
