I don't think that mii-tool and ethtool are useful in netkit. Netkit uses UML, 
user mode linux. You can search on the net about networking in user mode 
linux for more informations about this topic..
You can (for example) search on google 'user mode linux network performance', 
there are many benchmark and comparisons between real machines, uml virtual 
machines and other types of virtual machine.

I hope that these informations could be useful for your objectives.
