The Ubuntu libvirt had a early version of the patch for supporting
the 'boot=on' parameter - I believe they always use it for any VM
with a domain type of 'kvm'. Since you are using regular QEMU it
is correct that you need to change the domain type to type=qemu

I believe it is a disto bug - the upstream code for this should be
auto-detecting whether 'boot=on' is supported automatically now.

Generally speaking, if you are yusing the libvir packages built by your
OS distributor,then use their bug tracking system. They will forward
bugs to upstream libvirt as required, or fix OS specific bugs directly.
