Could you post the output of $ cat /proc/cpuinfo?

In theory, if your CPU doesn't support Intel-VT, you could either use
plain qemu w/ qemu-kqemu (You'll have use the rpmfusion repository for
the kqemu kernel driver - without it qemu is more-or-less brain dead) or
revert to non-Fedora shipped VM solutions such as Virtualbox (good for
desktop virtualization; works OK on Fedora) and VMWare server (Bloated,
Bit*h to setup on Fedora [they only support RHEL], very problematic web
interface, good for server virtualization)
