They are supposed to be UFS format (according to the net) and that
usually means you have to tell mount exactly which option to use (as not
all UFS implementations are compatible).
I've tried (all the options I can find) and failed:
$ sudo mount -t ufs -o ufstype=44bsd /dev/sr1 /tmp/mount
44bsd is likely too new. ufstype=old or =sunos or =sun might work.
I just tried on an Ultrix 4.5 ISO and I was able to mount it with
ufstype=old or without a ufstype option.
