"The upper MMIO region" error if -HighMemoryMappedIoSpace parameter exceeds 512MB

I'm using Windows 10 2004 host and Windows 10 2004 Hyper-V guest Gen2 VM "W102004_01".

The following command is issued in Powershell for Guest VM:

 $vm = "W102004_01"
 Set-VM -LowMemoryMappedIoSpace 3072MB -VMName $vm
 Set-VM -HighMemoryMappedIoSpace 512MB -VMName $vm

If -HighMemoryMappedIoSpace parameter value exceeds 512MB even by 1 MB, then the errors occur during Guest VM startup.

For example:
Set-VM -HighMemoryMappedIoSpace 1GB -VMName $vm
Error during VM startup:
The upper MMIO region (0x000000101ffff000) is above the supported physical address range.
Make sure that the upper MMIO region is below 0x0000001000000000.

Set-VM -HighMemoryMappedIoSpace 750MB -VMName $vm
Error during VM startup:
The upper MMIO region (0x000000100edff000) is above the supported physical address range.
Make sure that the upper MMIO region is below 0x0000001000000000.

Set-VM -HighMemoryMappedIoSpace 513MB -VMName $vm
Error during VM startup:
The upper MMIO region (0x00000010001ff000) is above the supported physical address range.
Make sure that the upper MMIO region is below 0x0000001000000000.

It seems that the system doesn't allow to increase upper MMIO region above default 512MB value.

Guest VM parameters are attached.19897-vm-parameters.txt

The same errors exist also for Gen1 VM.
