the <hub> element is for creating virtual hubs,

The 'bus' here needs to match the 'index' of an exisitng <controller
type='usb'> in the domain XML.

For passing a host USB device to the guest, use <hostdev>:
   <hostdev mode='subsystem' type='usb'>
      <source>
        <address bus='1' device='10'/>
      </source>
    </hostdev>

But in my testing, passing a USB hub did not work - neither the hub
nor the devices on it were visible in the guest.
