The comment makes it sound like it's the latter and the API name hints at the former. It would be nice to clarify this in the comment.

Not awesome, but `IsMacOSRosettaProcess` or `IsMacOSRosettaTranslated`?

A more serious question: Is Host actually the right place for this function? What happens when I remote-debug a Rosetta process from another Mac or a Linux machine? Is there even a correct abstraction for this use-case? Platform maybe?
