I see that the wiki page doesn't cover memory-backend-ram but it is
implemented in libvirt and doable with XML. That wiki page will most
likely miss other QEMU commands but you can always check the Domain XML
format documentation [1] to see if libvirt supports what you want to

For your case you want to use something like this:

      <currentMemory unit='GiB'>6</currentMemory>
          <cell id='0' cpus='0-3' memory='4' unit='GiB'/>
          <cell id='1' cpus='4-7' memory='2' unit='GiB'/>

More details here [2].

Note: one defined libvirt will show the memory in `KiB` so that
behavior is expected.
