Hate to be that guy, but it's the other way around..  Xen does provide paravirtualization,
KVM does not, but libvirt does with Qemu.

Virtualbox is PV only not HAV

Virtualbox doesn't support nested virtualization (unless they just barely
added it), which is why we have to use fusion (or KVM if you run linux) for
the KVM version of devcloud.  Vbox works for the Xen devcloud though
because it doesn't require the Xen guests to have paravirtualization,
whereas cloudstack KVM guests do.
