Yes, we've done some testing. With an oVirt VM running on a host using 10Gb ethernet copying data to a physical machine also using 10Gb ethernet we don't see network utilization exceed 800Mbits or so. A bit of research online yields some experimentation done by others who used SR-IOV to achieve 10Gb from a VM.
I'm not sure where the bottleneck is, possibly in the VirtIO driver.
