I tried to read a simple xml file {<rows> <row id='0'> <cell>65</cell> </row> <row id='1'> <cell>565</cell> </row> <row id='2'> <cell>6565</cell> </row></rows>} and received [#document: null].

I'm not sure why you think that you received an empty document.
The display that you are seeing, [#document: null], consists of two parts. The first part is #document, which is the node name. When you parse XML with xmlread, you always receive a #document node as the top-level node.
>> dom = xmlread('example.xml')
dom =
[#document: null]
>> getNodeName(dom)
ans =
The second part is null, which is the value of the node. null is used to indicate that the node doesn't have a value.
>> getNodeValue(dom)
ans =
A #text node usually has a value. In your example, the text node under the first cell element has a value of '65'.
>> cells = dom.getElementsByTagName('cell');
>> cell = cells.item(0)
cell =
[cell: null]
>> text = cell.item(0)
text =
[#text: 65]
>> getNodeValue(text)
ans =
