I forget how this works -- do you need to comment these out while using
pygrub or are these paths inside the ISO?

Sadly I don't think xl is currently capable of booting using pygrub from
a file:/// type device.

I expect this will be resolved by Stefano's "qdisk local attach" series
which was on the list last week.

In the meantime as a workaround you could try using losetup on the iso
and pointing xl at phy:/dev/loop$N.
