The fact that /dev/centos/root (XFS filesystem) wasn't resized here
indicates that you don't have the correct XFS subpackage installed.

Virt-resize would have given you a warning about this, but in any case
you need to install the ‘libguestfs-xfs’ package on the host.

You shouldn't need to resize anything in the guest, virt-resize
should do it - see above.
