Is it possible to use Intel NPT to do cross ISA memory translation?

Is it possible to use Intel NPT to do cross ISA memory translation?

O.K., I know Intel virtualization techniques are used to help better performance for same ISA, i.e., x86, virtualization. But I am curious if we can use NPT to help us to do cross ISA memory translation. For example, I can run a ARM guest on x86 host by using QEMU, but the memory translation inside QEMU is pure software. Is it possible to leverage underlying hardware to speedup the translation?

Any comments are welcome. Thanks!
