Well, the clue's in the name:

"KVM (for Kernel-based Virtual Machine)"

I don't know any of the details of the implementation of KVM, but the
fact that it's written as a kernel module and has 'kernel' in its name
implies it's rather Linux kernel specific, to me =) You could have qemu
and virt-manager run on Windows, I guess - perhaps they even do - but
the KVM bit would have to be supplied by something else.
