I have one question about machine time delay in guest domains (full

In order to evaluate cpu performance, I applied "SPEC CPU2006" and found
machine time of guest domains is severely delayed from actual time.
->Actual test time : test time measured in guest domains = 4:1
(e.g., Actual test time =40 min, test time measured in guest domain time
=10 min)

I think that there is some relationship between the number of domains and
(please see the following results)

Does anyone know why this kind of time delay occurs in Xen?

-Host machine has 2 cores (core number 0-1)
-Guest OSs: Full virtualization

*test 1
4 domains share 2 core (each domain has 2 vcpu)
->result: actual test time : test time measured in guest domains = 4:1

*test 2
2 domains share 1 core and the other 2 domains share the other 1 core.
->result: actual test time : test time measured in guest domains = 2:1

Thanks for your kindness.
