Nope. Virtualization != emulation != simulation != interpretation.

Nevertheless when ppl talk about virtual machines they usually refer to pieces of software that implement machines that cannot be implemented by hardware because they provide high level opcodes and primitives.

If you use gxemul or qemu you end up having the same problems than running your software natively as audio/video/io/network is not abstracted and require a system running on top of your app to handle it.

Virtual machines are also refered to code emulation on top of real architecture or software in advanced binary packers.
