Yes, please call it "Linux Virtual Machine" aka LVM.

Yeah, because Googling "lvm can't mount root" won't be confusing at all</sarcasm>

Cool idea.

How about KEM as its name(Kernel Emulator) ? :-)

I like verbs that make sense on the command line. How about just "boot":

$ boot vmlinuz

or "vboot" (for virtual boot):

$ vboot vmlinuz

or "kboot" (for KVM/Kernel boot):

$ kboot vmlinuz

Name Change

Hmm, boot is a type of shoe, so we could call it kshoe, or perhaps something that sounds like it, and call it cashew. Of course the native shell would be have to be csh ;)
