If cost is the driving factor and your website is small, you could consider Amazon or Google Compute.
On Amazon you can have a "t1.micro" instance at 2 cents/hour or half that if you pre-pay for a year or more.
This instance type has enough capacity for a small web server and associated technology.

It does not have enough capacity for some of the more enterprise scale XML databases but those are designed for more demanding needs.

Or, are there any (cheap) web hosts that have these xquery
functionalities already installed on their servers?

If these server software are not readily provided by cheap web host
suppliers, isn't it easier to use postgresql and php which is more
likely to available from existing low cost web host suppliers?

Whilst xquery seems interesting, for a personal learning project
having to pay for a dedicated server is expected to be too expensive.
