+++ This bug is a downstream clone. The original bug is: +++
+++   bug 1545270 +++

Description of problem:

RHV Manager web UI reports virtio nics as being '1000Mbps'. This leads to confusion as user might incorrectly assume that is the maximum performance of a virtio nic. 

This is reported in RHV 4.2 in:

Comment 1 RHV bug bot 2018-06-21 10:15:49 UTC
It is important to note that all vNIC speeds are "decorative" at best. Still, if we keep reporting a speed, it makes sense to make it a more modern value of 10 Gbps.

According to Amnon, with bug 1545270, this would be the case for in-windows reported speed.

Verified on -

Note - Only virtio nics reported as 10gbit in the webUI.
'pci-passthrough', e1000 reported as 1gbit and rtl8139 as 100Mbps.
