People are also reporting that the performance hit is severe, which is unlikely to be accidental.

Yeah, I can confirm the performance hit is severe. Had WSL2 setup and VirtualBox 6.1.6 I was able to start my Win7 VM, but since VirtualBox was forced to use Hyper-V the VM never made it past the Win7 start up animation after 10-15 minutes.

Ended up reverting back to WSL1 to get the performance back on my VMs.

Oh wow, that's worse than I thought .. I was just considering testing it out in the coming weeks for myself - thanks for saving me the effort!
