Ok, need to sort that out for certain to get much further.

What are you running for Dom0?
Did you do the sysctl's in Dom0 or in the guest?
To be effective I would think they would need to be run
in the guest, but if DOM0 is timing out and returning
an I/O error then they well have to be adjusted there first.

Are these timeouts coming from Dom0 or from a VM in a DomU?

Windows has horrible long timeouts and large retry counts, and worse
they dont warn the user that it is having issues other than event logs
and things usually go to the state of drive catastrophic failure before
the user ever sees an error.
