In general, kermit under Linux (and other unix-like operating systems)
expect you to start kermit from the terminal emulator of your choice,
and "inherits" whatever terminal emulation you have started it from.
FWIW, I've successfully done vt100 with kermit started from xterm.

Are you sure that your xterm has Tektronix graphics emlation compiled
in / enabled?
I haven't tested graphics emulation yet, because I don't have a
vintage machine that supports it.
