Based on the info you provided I infer that you're running Linux.

Because mount is relying on /etc/mtab which couldn't be updated
precisely because / was remounted ro.
You'll need a recent xfsprogs version, at least 2.7.17 IIRC, one
that uses that uses /proc/mounts instead of /etc/mtab to check
Or you can use a dirty and quick hack
- prior to remounting ro, edit /etc/mtab and change the root fs entry from
rw to ro.
- remount ro
- run your xfs_check/xfs_repair in dangerous mode.
FWIW the safe thing to do after a repair on a mounted root FS is to reboot.
