You only need to load the kvm_intel kernel module if you are using virt_type = kvm.
Note that if you are running in an environment without support for hardware accelerated virtualization (that, if you are not using kvm), you will probably find the performance of virtual instances to be disappointing. virt_type = qemu is really only suitable for proof-of-concept or test environments.
