The SDL version has no GUI. You have to start it with a ROM image, and it needs to be configured with a plaintext .cfg file.

<the .exe name here> <path to a .GBA dump here>

Or drag onto a shortcut.

Really, you're better off using the native GUI port. The SDL port is best reserved for front-ends, or something like that.
