The warning is just that, so it doesn't really matter at the moment.
However you can configure libguestfs like this if you want to use a
particular binary:

  ./configure --with-qemu="qemu-system-x86_64"

x86-64 as a platform supports 32 bit operating systems.  So there's no
special KVM emulator required to run 32 bit VMs.
