Remove SkyImage and SkyCube #1594

It is the culmination of 1-2 years of work, mostly by @woodmd to design and implement

Users that want to update from Gammapy v0.7 to v0.8 will all have to learn
There was the possibility of keeping the old for a few more months, and to have both the old and new in parallel. This would have been a large drag for Gammapy developers, and I also think it would have been a nightmare for users, to see a wild mix of code and docs using SkyImage/SkyCube or gammapy.maps. The Gammapy userbase will grow significantly in the coming year, and for new users having the transition done is gold. For existing users: consider sticking with Gammapy v0.7 for existing working scripts that use SkyImage / SkyCube, and for new projects or projects that just started, update to gammapy.maps. For the vast majority of code, it's really mostly equivalent and you "just" have to update one line at a time until it runs again and you get the same output as before. Ask for help if you're stuck or don't know how to do it!
