Doc: Clarification on allowed timeout values
This patch clarifies what is an acceptable timeout value in Net::HTTP and Timeout::timeout. The existing documentation does not clearly indicate that fractional seconds may be specified, leaving the reader to guess whether only integer values or float values are allowed. Ultimately, Kernel::sleep is called, which accepts any number.
