Support for the SDL display in libvirt is incomplete[*].  You'd have
to bypass libvirt to use it.

Are you sure you really need SDL?  It has a serious usability problem:
if you close its window, the PV framebuffer backend terminates, and
you have to reboot the guest to get another one[**].  Why can't you
stick to VNC?  It works fine locally.

Sorry, I can't answer you question on qemu-dm.

[**] Actually, you can restart the backend by hand, if you know what
you're doing.  Cheesy hacks in the backend make this work.
