I was missing that libvirt looks also for qemu-kvm, in this case for
me qemu-kvm is ok as well :)

It's just that I think that usually, between qemu-kvm and qemu, only
one should be needed, depending on the hardware on which you have to
do virtualization.
but, who knows, maybe I'm missing some use cases...
