There is no such setting. Spice automatically uses all the available
That said if for some reason it settled on a bandwidth lower than what
is truly available, it will only try to increase bandwidth usage again
after a while and only quite progressively (at least for the GStreamer
backend, I don't really remember what the mjpeg one does in that case).
