docs: Document GitLab custom CI/CD variables

We introduced the QEMU_CI_AVOCADO_TESTING variable in commit f56bf4caf
("gitlab: Run Avocado tests manually (except mainstream CI)"), but
forgot to document it properly. Do it now.

Set variable manually when pushing a branch or tag to the user's repository
---------------------------------------------------------------------------
Variables can be set manually when pushing a branch or tag, using
git-push command line arguments.
Example setting the QEMU_CI_EXAMPLE_VAR variable:
.. code::
git push -o ci.variable="QEMU_CI_EXAMPLE_VAR=value" myrepo mybranch

Here is a list of the most used variables:
QEMU_CI_AVOCADO_TESTING
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
By default, tests using the Avocado framework are not run automatically in
the pipelines (because multiple artifacts have to be downloaded, and if
these artifacts are not already cached, downloading them make the jobs
reach the timeout limit). Set this variable to have the tests using the
Avocado framework run automatically.
