Public external cloud’s user’s access to specific hardware resources

I am an in house lawyer at a software development company offering PaaS. In legal literature on this subject, everyone attaches legal effects to the geographical location of the hosting physical server (like it or not). Evidently, in the Cloud context it is not easy to determine where the server you are currently using is located. But, theoretically, it isn't contrary to the idea of cloud computing to access specific hardware in a specific geographical location. Evidently, depending on the type of virtualization installed on the physical server, VMs working on the server will have a more or less direct access to the hardware that can more or less be intercepted by the Public Cloud Provider. At least, thats what i figured... Now I am looking for publications I can use for citation that explain more exactly to what degree the access of the user to hardware is direct... any ideas?
