Reproduced on qemu-kvm- and 
verified on qemu-kvm- by following command:
# /usr/libexec/qemu-kvm --help | grep nest

Actual Result:
on qemu-kvm-
# /usr/libexec/qemu-kvm --help | grep nest
-enable-nesting enable support for running a VM inside the VM (AMD only)
on qemu-kvm-
# /usr/libexec/qemu-kvm --help  | grep nest | wc -l
