There is no such document because depending on how you configure the VM, 
the visible hardware can be quite different. E.g. there are 3 network 
card models (from two different vendors), and two sound card models. 
ACPI and IOAPIC can be disabled, and there are two USB controllers (OHCI 
and EHCI). Additionally the IDE controller can be configured for PIIX3 
or PIIX4 and so on. So your simple question has no simple answer.
