Setting CPU CAP in XEN


From XEN manual:
"The cap optionally fixes the maximum amount of CPU a guest will be able to consume,
even if the host system has idle CPU cycles. The cap is expressed in percentage of one
physical CPU: 100 is 1 physical CPU, 50 is half a CPU, 400 is 4 CPUs, etc... The
default, 0, means there is no upper cap"

Im using server with Intel Core i7-975 Quadcore CPU. While it has 4 cores, the Linux shows 8 CPU's, since this processor utilizes Hyper Threading Technology.

I want to set the cap to 1 CPU (1 core) for  my Xen domU's.
What value should I use?

Thank You in advance.
