Update README.md

The actual QGIS licence (viewable in any source file, e.g. src/core/qgis.cpp) shows that the software is licenced under GPL version 2 "or (at your option) any later version".

This PR updates README.md to reflect this for potential users who are concerned about the license restrictions if QGIS were GPLv2-only.
