When creating the VM in virt-manager, in the last step you can select a
checkbox 'Modify configuration before install'. When you do that you
will see the configuration dialog for the VM and there on the Overview
tab you can also find the UUID. I haven't tried that but that way you
may be able to create the TMP directory in advance.

Hope this helps,
