QorIQ LS1046A compatibility with newer Ethernet standards

I am trying to to find the proper processor for my embedded design. 

What I need is a processor that supports 10 Gbps Ethernet and at least 8 GB of RAM.

I realize that QorIQ LS1046A has all that I need.

However, for the 10G connection, it says it is compatible with 10GBase-KR

  1. Does that mean it is not compatible with 10GBase-T? If it is compatible, then do I need special components to make the interface or does the port work just like that?
  2. And if I connect a device with a newer standard, like 802.3bz, NBase-T or MGBase-T, will it work at 2.5/10 Gbps, or will it fall back to 1Gbps?
