We use the performance monitor to benchmark and test our VMware machines.

Check out ask the performance team blog. They have a lot of articles on disk benchmarking and generating daily benchmark tests

I would recommend to benchmark your application on real machine first so you get some data for comparison.

Best tool to benchmark disk is IOmeter. You can find expected IOP values on wiki - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/IOPS

Regarding the CPU - if your company runs any kind of stress tests, it should be enough to compare results from real and virtual machine.
