You need more RAM. You're not accounting for the memory set aside for
Xen itself, let alone domain 0's RAM requirements. Right now, assuming a
minimalist dom0, you might be able to eke out 80-90 MB per unprivileged

Xen does no paging of its own. It deals in physical RAM exclusively.
Individual domains may page as they see fit, but Xen neither knows about
it, nor does it care.
