But not dom0 right?

Correct; no dom0 support.

Is there a doc somewhere to say how to migrate from Xen boots using rootfs
(not bootable disk image) to kvm?

You mean it's a disk image with no partition table and bootloader?

So, you're booting the guest by specifying a kernel and initrd along
with the disk image?

If so, you should be able to do exactly the same with KVM - you'll just
need to manually create a suitable initrd using whatever method you used
to create the original initrd for Xen.

But no, I don't know of any good docs describing how to migrate xen
guests to KVM ... it'd be very cool if someone could write something up
on fedoraproject.org/wiki as they go through the process, though ...

There's a tool, I don't have the name handy, but I saw it on either the rawhide or FC9-testing update notices. Give me an hour or two to look on the machine I use for that stuff and I'll post it.
