well, if it’s a requirement then it is perhaps worth it to look for them a bit 
Though I would personally try to look for something looking as a thin client 
but being a “normal” desktop, and load it with a cut-down Linux (or Windows, 
whatever you fancy) and use remote-viewer. Better performance, better control, 
likely cheaper. I’m sure there are people stuffing a raspberry pi into a 
plastic box, charging $500, calling it a thin client:)

There are others, but indeed IGEL is probably the most prominent
In general the support matrix for oVirt would be the same as for corresponding 
RHEV version, so check with vendors.

depends what you need, if it’s nothing fancy it may be sufficient enough and 
provide good experience
