Please keep in mind that QCAD is a 2D CAD system. Heights, terrain and volume are all 3D aspects which cannot be represented with QCAD.

However, QCAD does not support the typical 3D entities such as 3DFACE, 3DSOLID, BODY at all.
Further, QCAD does not support viewing or editing of 3D data.
Perhaps, you can describe in more detail what problem you are intending to solve and attach some example data, screenshots, etc, so I can give you an idea if QCAD is suitable for the task.

<QCAD installation directory>/scripts/Widgets/PropertyEditor/PropertyEditor.js
This replaces the file that already exists.
Future QCAD versions might offer a user preference to display Z values, so I'd appreciate any feedback on this experimental feature. Thanks.
