sched/rt: Show the 'sched_rr_timeslice' SCHED_RR timeslice tuning knob in milliseconds

We added the 'sched_rr_timeslice_ms' SCHED_RR tuning knob in this commit:

ce0dbbbb30ae ("sched/rt: Add a tuning knob to allow changing SCHED_RR timeslice")

... which name suggests to users that it's in milliseconds, while in reality
it's being set in milliseconds but the result is shown in jiffies.

This is obviously confusing when HZ is not 1000, it makes it appear like the
value set failed, such as HZ=100:

root# echo 100 > /proc/sys/kernel/sched_rr_timeslice_ms
root# cat /proc/sys/kernel/sched_rr_timeslice_ms
10

Fix this to be milliseconds all around.
