virtio-vga doesn't need dedicated video memory, except for the
(unaccelerated) vga compatibility mode. But given that there are no
virtio-vga drivers for windows (yet) it'll actually runs in vga mode, so
you have no advantages over stdvga.
stdvga can be configured with up to 256M of video memory (-device
VGA,vgamem_mb=64). This will allow higher resolutions display
resolutions. Still an unaccelerated framebuffer though.
