Section Number and Name: 
3.2. Creating virt-who Configuration using Hammer

Describe the issue: 

--hypervisor-id hostname \ 5    <-- Notice hostname is in italics, the traditional way to render a replaceable value, but its confusing as it must be one of three literal values.

    Specifies how the hypervisor will be identified. Possible values: hostname, uuid, hwuuid. Recommended: hostname. 

That command argument is a literal, not replaceable, but as there are more than one you cannot just put one marked up as a literal.

Suggestions for improvement: 

s|hypervisor-id hostname|hypervisor-id __hypervisor_id__|

Additional information:
