The correct list for Xen API questions is xen-api@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
CCing that list and moving xen-devel to BCC.

I'm not sure what "template of Xen API SDK" you are referring to since
there are two options

First is an "sdk.zip" appliance template. In this case you should unzip
and use VM.import on the resulting sdk image. e.g.
        $ unzip sdk.zip
        $ xe vm-import filename=sdk

The second option is the SDK template, in this case you need to use
VM.install and then provide the XCP standard installation iso (i.e. the
same one you installed the host from) in the CD drive before starting
the guest and running through the XCP installer in the usual way. e.g.
assuming you have already created an ISO SR which has
XCP-1.0-base-42052.iso in it:
        $ xe vm-install template-name="Xen API SDK" new-name-label=an-sdk
        <A VM UUID>
        $ xe vm-cd-add vm="an-sdk" cd-name="XCP-1.0-base-42052.iso"

(this is only rough since I'm working from memory)

You may also need to set the CDROM VBD to be bootable.
