I don't think trying to remove a file system is the preffered route here. Because normally /opt is part of the / directory in most generic installations. Is your /opt in it's own partition?
Anyways, from a Linux system, you don't need to mount a drive/partition using the loop option if it's formatted ext3.

You have created a linux filesystem from an ordinary file, then you have simply to unmount the loop device and remove the file:
Code:
umount /opt/uml/debian-root
rm /opt/uml/debian-root
