SIMH supports the KS10 (it didn't have a front panel, just something like three switches), for KL10B support you need to go with KLH10 (or maybe TS10, I'm not sure how far it has progressed). Only the KS10 and KL10 are currently supported by emulation.

I believe the FPGA Clone being done by David G. Conroy is a cross between a KA10 and the KL/KS. I think the one that Neil Franklin's working on is a cross between a KS, KL, and XKL10.

For a rundown on the mostly current state of PDP-10 emulation, see:

SIMH doesn't currently include any support for connecting real hardware does it? ISTR, that E11 has at least partial support for this.
