Yes best will be to have a "real" device. If over memory config, dma allocation will rely on dedicated memory pool, else on generic one.

Yes if memory carveout is not dedicated to vring, indeed some other allocations could have been done before...
In that case it means the region is not well sized and firmware and associated resources can't be supported
