Look at some of the existing tests like the one I suggest,
write tests that do that kind of thing. "Unit test" here
just means "this is a test case that tests one specific
device from 'outside' without loading any guest binary".

No. That's an old and out-of-security-support Ubuntu so you should
upgrade it anyway. 18.04 is currently OK, but you might as well
move forward to 20.04 at this point.

If you have real hardware to compare behaviour against that can
be helpful, but it isn't necessary. The main thing you need is
to have full documentation for the hardware (devices and SoC).
