Thanks, the problem is clear now.

The 'virsh capabilities' data you posted shows that your host CPUs
are 32-bit.  Surprisingly you do in fact have KVM support for your
32-bit host. The 'kvm' machine type in the capabilities shows this.

But the log file here shows that Boxes has attempted to create a
64-bit guest.  Since your host is 32-bit, you can't use KVM
acceleration for the 64-bit guests, hences this error.

Before attempting to create a guest with KVM, Boxes really ought
to check the capabilities XML to see if KVM is in fact supported
for the architecture it is creating the guest as. If not, it
could either refuse to creat the guest, or create a guest using
plain QEMU
