Best place to report bugs against xen-tools (including docs bugs like
the above appears to be) is, according to [0], the Debian BTS.

I find reportbug(1) a useful tool for doing this, or you can find more
info on reporting a bug at http://www.debian.org/Bugs/

xen-tools also has its own user and dev lists, see [1].
