This isn't possible via the API. In general the IP address is only known
to the guest OS. You have to resort to playing games like sninffing the
ARP packets to guess what IP the guest has, or setting upa fixed MAC
address <-> IP address mapping in your DHCP server

Just look at the source for virsh in tools/virsh.c - search for 'vncdisplay'
there. It basically just gets the data from the XML <display> element.
