I detected a java bug for ARM64 in WDQS docker
image, I've fixed it by
re-publishing WDQS docker image "jmformenti/wdqs:0.3.40-wmde.2".
If someone tried to run Wikibase on ARM64 will need to remove wdqs
docker image from local and do a new pull.
Instructions have been updated too, adding an extra step.

it was quite
straightforward, only elasticsearch has been a little tricky.
Of course it is a beta version, tests will be necessary.
I've pushed the docker images to Docker Hub too, easy way to run
Wikibase on ARM64:
Hope that could help anybody.
