Turns out to be an issue in Libvirt. I think I reported it to libvirt but forgot about the issue. Editing the domain for the VM is required. The GUI for virt-manager doesn't allow one to set kvm as the emulator. So virsh => edit Domain works. Specify /usr/bin/kvm as the emulator. It still results in the following, but the overall performance is better and more closer in line to what you mentioned earlier. qemu-system-x86_64 -enable-kvm -name Hurd -S -machine pc-i440fx- 2.4,accel=tcg,usb=off,vmport=off -cpu kvm32 -m 2048 It is almost the same as before, just the important addition of "- enable-kvm" option.
