It is our understanding that a GPL VM can't be freely redistributed in a commercial product.

There should be no trouble at all freely redistributing such a thing in
a commercial product. Just make sure you distribute the source code for
it to your users.

Just to clarify:

Depends what you mean by "it".  If you mean the VM, that may not be
enough, since in an embedded environment it is likely the VM is linked
in with the commercial product.  In that case you may also have to
freely redistributing source for the commercial product.  (Of course
we know that Free ("open-source") Software is not incompatible with
it being commercial (i.e. for-profit) - but it is incompatible with
it being proprietary ("closed-source").)
