On further thought, I think domterm is doing the right thing here.
You need to to use an extra layer of quoting:

./bin/domterm --browser="'Applications/Google Chrome.app/Contents/MacOS/Google Chrome'"

DomTerm could add the quotes automatically, but that would prevent passing extra arguments:

./bin/domterm --browser="'Applications/Google Chrome.app/Contents/MacOS/Google Chrome' --option1 --option2"
