If Emma had politely refused him without giving a reason, Mr Knightley would probably think he had been too sudden, that she had thought of him as a family friend, almost a relative, and needed time to think of him as a lover. Perhaps like Edmund Bertram at the end of MP, he would think it "an hopeful, a possible undertaking to persuade her that her warm and sisterly regard for him would be foundation enough for wedded love." (Edmund did not know that Fanny's heart was already his!)
But if Emma's flight of generosity had really run mad, and she had asked him to transfer his affections to Harriet, I think he would be greatly offended and angry, there would be a row between them, he could say something like -- "If you don't want to marry me, there is no need for you to turn me into one of your crazy match-making projects", and storm away.
