No one has contributed such an API yet, although I think it would be a
welcome addition.  For now, the best you can do is list all domains and
parse their XML to see if any of their disks refer to a file that lines
up with any of the storage volumes.  Not pretty, but virt-manager
already has code that does this (in the python bindings), if you want to
use that as a starting point.
