So you want to install PV domU?

type=ioemu is unnecessary, and might cause problems

You didn't say what OS you're trying to install. Most Linux distros
that I know of can't install PV guest from cdrom/iso.

I don't think those lines mean anything on PV domU. Where did you base
your domU config from?

AFAIK these ones also have meaning in HVM domU, not PV

Since you have virt-manager anyway, why not start with letting it
create a domU config file for you?
Easiest way to install some (e.g. Centos, Fedora) PV domU from scratch
is by using http install mirror.
