It would have offered you 'kvm' is that was available, so you'll be
using QEMU.   You want to check 'virsh capabilities' to verify that
libvirt actually detected presence of KVM.  'virsh dumpxml GUEST'
should also show  type='kvm' and <emulator> pointing go qemu-kvm if
virt-manager actually requested it.
