A domain does not have an IP address. A domain is equivalent to a PC in 
hardware, which might have none, 1 2 or more network cards, each one with 
it's own MAC address. This is the only propertpy of the hardware and can be 
configured via the domain XML description.
What IP address your hosts uses is in complete control of your guest operating 
system: It might configure no IP addresses at all, use a mix of IPv4 and ipv4 
addresses, use static assignment, or use external services like DHCP, but is 
completely independent from the hardware.
So from libvirts point of view, your domain does not have an IP address.

Sincerely
