I'd suggest you use it and see if it fits your own needs.  A useful
presentation to get a feel for unikernels and their limitations and
strengths is: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oHcHTFleNtg

Some of the Mirage libraries are mature and well-tested, and others
are quite new.  Your mileage will vary, but more users for a library
generally equate to higher quality.  If you find something missing,
leaping in and building the first OCaml implementation is always fun.
