Something like this?
--dhcp-host=<mac1>, --dhcp-host=<mac2>,

However yesterday I spent some hours because I mistyped an IP address so that 
I had two lines with the same ip address. dnsmasq just used the last line 
which is where the trouble started for me. What would have helped me is a 
warning that stated that I have a duplicated line in /etc/ethers.
