No currently not, our KVM/QEMU package gets compiled with the x86_64 
target only.

You would have to recompile our package (pve-qemu-kvm) with the 
respective targets included.
And start the VM with KVM disabled. I don't know though 100% that there 
is nothing else to change.

If you do this expirment it would be nice if you can get back to the 
list with the results :)

If you have questions how to add the targets to the package I can try 
assisting you, I do not have time for this experiment myself atm, sorry :)
