top: document an existing provision of pid monitoring

Since its inception top has provided for monitoring
only specific process ids via the -p command line
switch.  This provision has also embraced the top
process itself, even though its pid wasn't yet known.

This commit simply documents the special zero value,
which would otherwise be an invalid process id.
