I didn't make a GitHub issue since this is such a simple documentation update.

When I Cmd-F to find "timeout" in the README (i.e. GitHub home page for Axios), I see timeout: 1000, but the default is actually 0 (no timeout). Similar to how other configs have their // default listed in a comment, I added a comment to specify that even though the example says timeout is 1000, the default is 0 (no timeout).

This caused confusion in my project with an unreliable API. I couldn't find the source of a queue that was blocking too much, and after a few hours I realized that the Axios timeout is actually 0, not 1000.
