Fix problems in the snapshot parameter description in the RTD

in the internal units of time. Users also have to provide the difference in time
(or scale-factor) between consecutive outputs:
* Time difference between consecutive outputs: ``delta_time``.
In non-cosmological runs this is also expressed in internal units. For
cosmological runs, this value is *multiplied* to obtain the
scale-factor of the next snapshot. This implies that the outputs are
equally spaced in :math:`\log(a)` (See :ref:`Output_list_label` to have
snapshots not regularly spaced in time).
The location and naming of the snapshots is altered by the following options:

When running the code with structure finding activated, it is often
useful to have a structure catalog written at the same simulation time
as the snapshots. To activate this, the following parameter can be
