Rethink about this, since simulator can be used by VM, so the allocation 
is actually guest trigger-able when vIOMMU is enabled.

This means we need a limit somehow, (e.g I remember swiotlb is about 
64MB by default). Or having a module parameter for this.

Btw, have you met any issue when using 2048, I guess it can happen when 
we run several processes in parallel?
