add timeunits to simList show method #260
There is currently not a STRONG enough message showing the time units of the modules. Because of modularity, the user doesn't need to know that different modules have different time units. SpaDES takes care of that. BUT, if time units are not set properly in the meta data, then there is currently no error/warning that would make it obvious that this is the problem.
It seems like it would be too slow to add a column to the events list, and it is not entirely appropriate, since they are all being shown in a single unit anyway ( timeunit(sim) units).
I don't like messages because they will show up all the over and over again; and I don't like the showing of the timeunits(sim) because the user might not see it.
We need a balance between too much information and not enough information.
My plan was to add it to the show method of the simlist, and also create a

currently, one can use:
# for a module, read the file directly moduleMetadata('module', 'path/to/modules/dir')$timeunit # for a simulation, read the simList object timeunits(mySim)
this means we don't need to create new functionality, just display the info more prominently.
