Fedora installs both by default. I didn't found what are them exactly for, but yum autoremove selects them for autoremoval.

Is it safe, for a normal user (I mostly use this machine for documents and programming) to uninstall them?

qemu serves no system purpose-it is a cpu emulator for special purposes. Libvirt is a dependency of qemu. If autoremove selects them for removal, then you can delete it.
