The VM uses a virtual network interface on a physical interface that the Hypervisor (VMWare, KVM, Hyper-V) sets and controls. This means the "speed" of the interface can not be set or seen at the guest OS level because it is actually shared with other guests using the same physical interface.

You see similar on bonded NICs for similar reasons.
