Not sure about improving speed, esp. on Windows. There used to be
kqemu for older versions (0.9.0?), but that's been discontinued.

Anyways, VBox itself is allegedly partially based upon QEMU, but it's
not true that QEMU is always slower. At least one thing I was running
was faster under QEMU (+ Linux) than VBox (+ Win7), even without VT-X.
But that could be because of many different reasons. Using VT-X (which
for QEMU means using KVM variant instead) obviously increases speed
even further.

But nothing beats running natively (on real hardware).
