Savegames in Kyrandia 1 are called _kyra???.sav (_kyra000.sav is the first savegame). Each file is between 1.5kbyte and 2kbyte in size. (What happens if there are more than 1000 savegames?)
This reference exists for two reasons: firstly it may prove useful for debugging (as it is possible to inject any item into the original game as well as to teleport into any room), secondly it might be possible to import original savegames into a recreated VM some day.
