VMRUN question

I am trying to create a basic VM using AMD-V. From looking at AMD64 Architecture Programmer’s Manual Volume 2, I can set up EFER.SVME but I am not sure how much of my address space I should reserve for the host state-save area (memory pointed to by VM_HSAVE_PA MSR) or what a valid initial set of values for the VMCB are. I imagine that these are very basic questions, but from looking at the Architecture Programmer’s Manual Volume 2 and Architecture Programmer’s Manual Volume 3 the answers do not seem to be anywhere to be found and there is no other material (that I can find by Googling) about it.
