Could you try to run the xdd programs simultaneously?
dm-ioband controls bandwidth while I/O requests are issued
simultaneously from processes which belong to different cgroup.
If I/O requests are only issued from processes which belong to one
cgroup, the processes can use the whole bandwidth.

The following URL is an example of how bandwidth is shared to I/O
load change.
