QEMU and KVM are both fullvirt technologies. Xen is paravirt.

That page is just plain wrong for Fedora users. The binaries as installed
by the qemu (or qemu-system-x86) RPMs are setup correctly. There is no
need setup symlinks in that way. If you installed the qemu/qemu-system*
RPMs after the initial install, you should reboot to make sure all the
kernel modules are loaded, and features detected. If you don't want to
reboot, then manually check the kernel modules are loaded, and also 
restart the libvirtd daemon (service libvirtd restart)
