pgbench: Change terminology from "threshold" to "parameter".

Per a recommendation from Tomas Vondra, it's more helpful to refer to
the value that determines how skewed a Gaussian or exponential
distribution is as a parameter rather than a threshold.

Since it's not quite too late to get this right in 9.5, where it was
introduced, back-patch this. Most of the patch changes only comments
and documentation, but a few pgbench messages are altered to match.
