VM state should be invisible (except for PV devices).

Got it. That's why I called it "emulator state" (a bit generic, but more precise than vm state: vm_clock for example is guest-visible).

About 'machine', I was thinking about -M switch to specify
the emulated machine type.

Yes, makes sense. I actually like the name machine state, as long as you rename what you called "virtual machine state".
