If you don't have VT support, my understanding is that Xen similarly
works, just slower.
So what's the substantive difference?

I also think the issue is that Xen is still quite a head of KVM in features, but this too is slowing down.

YES PV is massively faster then just plain Qemu. Massively faster in all respects. The overhead of Xen PV vs naked hardware is going to be just a few percent.
Of course this requires modification to the guest.
