The US does not export to Iran, but still exported to Cuba. Qubes just an OS that based on Fedora. You don't have t be concern because of Whonix built-in.

Actually I think you might have even problem _in_ the country where you
use it. Also: Do you _export from_ the US, and is Qubes OS an US
product? As seen with PGP, preventing to export open source software is
somewhat ridiculous.
