Safest and easiest would be to run the command on the .vmdk file.  The
command creates an overlay and works in roughly the same was as
virt-v2v itself does.

As long as you use --ro it's safe to use.  However I'd suggest running
it on the source .vmdk to be as close as possible to what virt-v2v was
