You have left out the one important piece of information...

What is the <cpu> block configured for your *guest* XML.
I expect that your guest XML has set an explicit vendor
model name, and so libvirt will be refusing to migrate
from Intel to AMD even though the flags look compatible.

You can use the 'virsh cpu-compare' command, giving it the <cpu>
XML from your *guest*, and it will tell you if it is compatible
with that host.
