In that case, what I would do would be to create a new VM with virt-manager but use the disk image file provided. That will basically create /etc/libvirt/qemu/whatever.xml where whatever is the name you gave the VM in virt-manager. Then you can use virt-manager to start, stop, console connect etc... or you can use virsh from the command line.
BTW, if the VM is to have a public IP address then you want to setup a bridge device if you don't already have one, and associate the VM with that when you create it. If it is going to use a private IP address, then you can just use the default NAT.
KVM is a little complicated to get going with but the effort is definitely worth it.
And again, there is good documentation if you do a few searches.
