I think you should put "-r" and "param.txt" on two separate lines. The
reason for this is that Qt automatically quotes your argument because of
the space.
However, why don't you use a similar approach to the one outlined at
http://code.google.com/p/texworks/wiki/AdvancedTypesettingTools, i.e.
without configuration file (which latexmk might not always be able to find)?
