Documentation: Fix mark-up of lines with more than one tilde

The manual pages of cherry-pick and revert had examples with two revisions
on the same line in the examples section, that looked like this:

    git cherry-pick master~4 master~2::

Unfortunately, this is taken as a mark-up to make the part between two
tildes, "4 master", subscript.  Use {tilde} to make it explicit that we
do want ~ characters in these places (backslash does not help).
