You didn't seem to have added any port to the bridge. Try the following command.
It is described at INSTALL.DPDK.md. Also, I guess you may need to restart
ovs-vswitchd after you bind ports to igb_uio, vfio or other drivers DPDK supports.

   ovs-vsctl add-port br0 dpdk0 -- set Interface dpdk0 type=dpdk
