It seems you have neither compiled-in bootp or dhcp support, nor have
you given yout IP config at the command line (root=/dev/nfs
nfsroot=xx.xx.xx.aa:/path/to/root ip=xx.xx.xx.bb)

What boot loader do you use? Should be simple, though...

Either you need bootp/dhcp to give an IP address (and boot config) out
to your machine, or you need to supply that data at the command line.
