If in the test statement you pass a name of a child or attribute it returns true if the child exists, otherwise it returns false.

To match all the persons with a "tel" child you can try:
<xsl:apply-templates select="person[tel]"/>

There is a deatailed explanation about this in any XSLT beginer's guide.
