Changelog: Feature: Set conan generated CMake targets as GLOBAL so that they can be used with an ALIAS for consumers.
Docs: conan-io/docs#1534

Making an ALIAS of an IMPORTED target is possible in CMake for versions >v3.10.3 (>v3.14 in case they are UNKNOWN too) but they have to be set as GLOBAL.
This PR sets those targets defined by Conan as GLOBAL so they can take advantage of this for consumers with modern CMake versions.

fixes: #3482
