What you are after is policing. Here is a link on configuration guide on Policing:

Policing allows you to rate limit incoming and outgoing traffic so that it adheres to the traffic forwarding rules defined by the QoS configuration. Sometimes these configured rules for how traffic should be forwarded through the system are referred to as a contract. If the traffic does not adhere to this contract, it is marked down to a lower DSCP value or dropped.


Be forewarned that I've checked the PVLAN requirements and it does not mention that QoS or policing is not supported but I have not tried in myself.
