The error message is perfectly clear if you understand the terminology.

dom0 is the one you're currently logging in to.
If you're more familiar with vmware/vbox terms, dom0 (the one with id
= 0) is the "host", while domUs (the one with ID > 0) are "guests"

What you want to do makes no sense. "xm console" is used to access
domUs console from dom0.
