What you're trying todo is intentionally not available.

The memory ordering constraints needed for running x86_64 guests on ppc64
hosts cannot be satisfied, so multi-threaded TCG is not available.

For any guest/host combination where multi-thread TCG is safe to use, QEMU
will enable it automatically, so nothing is required in libvirt.
