Level doesn't affect EVs at all.
All of the Power Items give x + 4 EVs, so if that Pokemon gave 1 EV and you leveled twice, it would only be 5 EVs.
You would only gain 10 EVs with the aid of Pokerus.

Basically, EV are added to your Pokemon before EXP. So, even if you level up 5 levels after beating a Pokemon that yields 1 EV, you still gain 1 EV only. Holding the Power Bracer, you'd get 5 EV once, before the EXP are added to your Pokemon.
