there are 2 problems in your observations:

1) cpu usage inside of your virtual machine has no relation to the real physical world.

2) cpu usage & cpu ready are totally different....high usage and low ready is totally ok....in short: ready is the time the vCPU had to wait until it was scheduled to the pCPU.
