I have a rather complicated set up. So ill try best to explain what i have before i ask the question.

I am sitting at my desktop, ssh'ed to a server(10.10.10.XX). Which has xen guest(10.10.20.XX) installed.. I have on the server installed apache+mediawiki. On the xen guest i have apache installed. I have reversed proxied my xen guests ip to that when you go to 10.10.20.XX/mediawiki it shows the contense of 10.10.10.XX/mediawiki(which is my server).
Heres a diagram:

I want to set the bandwidth of 10.10.20.XX (my domu/guest) to 56KBits. So that when i go to 10.10.20.xx/mediawiki in my browser it takes a 56KBit load time. Which i am not sure if you can do. If not i still want to set my domU guest to 56kbits
