First of all, there is no IOMMU configured in your qemu command line.

But then the question is if you re running on an AMD host processor. The
qemu-vm.cell is pre-configured for an Intel VM with Intel IOMMU (emulation).

AMD is a different beast. Patches for IOMMU emulation are on their way
upstream but not yet complete for use with Jailhouse. Moreover, KVM has
some bug (or more) when in comes to running Jailhouse as a guest. Fixing
this is long on my to-do list, but there is too much right now.

Long story short: better try on an Intel host when you want it inside
KVM. Running Jailhouse natively on AMD should be fine again (no known
issues ATM).
