doc/import-rsnapshot: small corrections and clarification

There's a typo in the --dry-run option explanation.

The form "[...] or only imports all [...]" is confusing. Turn it around
a little bit so that the quantifiers are associated more easily to the
right portions of the sentence.

Also, add an example for using the backuptarget argument.
