Are you familiar with X display? X forwarding? If no, you should
search for that first.

If yes, Google for "windows ssh X forwarding". Something like this

Another alternative is to edit domU config file to accept vnc

testing purposes. This way you can simply install vnc client on
Windows and connect directly.
