Actually, the Oracle VM site clearly says that OVM is tried and tested with db's inside DomU. they even templates for 11g and some releases of 10g. Its the 'only' VM technology that is 'certified' for use with db's per the site.

First of all, in terms of support, AFAIK Oracle only supports Oracle
VM for virtualization technology.
As for I/O wait times, I suggest you try some generik benchmark first
on domU and dom0. At least that would make sure whether the problem is
on domU side or somewhere else.
