SIP does not support enums as an argument to template-based mapped 
types. It is a bug that SIP does not complain about this and generates 
code on the assumption that the type is a class. The generated code may 
or not compile.

You need to provide an explicit mapped type convertor. In its 
%TypeHeaderCode you can specify the .h file that contains the C++ 
definition of the enum. You can look at PyQt5's qpycore_qlist.sip to see 
how enum arguments are handled explicitly.
