Just like anything else, substitutions are futile. Use the right tool for the job. Yes we often use sushi mats in cheese making. Made of bamboo, they do great in moist/wet environment. However, it is my experience that the long exposure to the acidity doesn't do the sushi mat any good. So spend a few bucks, get the mat. Sushi mats aren't free either. And my little secret: I successfully made a reverse sushi roll with my new cheese mat. Keep smiling!
