Return appropriate value for Qt automatic scaling

Previously, QtUbuntu did not return the appropriate values for QtQuick2
scaling. This meant that developers would need to add some boilerplate
to their main.cpp or a shell script which set the QT_SCALE_FACTOR
environment variable by dividing the GRID_UNIT_PIXELS value on the
platform. This change makes QtUbuntu return QScreen::pixelDensity(), the
value which Qt uses to determine the scale factor by itself. The
constant of 96 was chosen since it appears to give amicable results with
the apps I've tested and is in line with the X QPA's pixelDensity()

Now, apps which specify sizes in pixels (by just putting an integer in
their width or height of widgets) will receive an integer scale factor.
For example, an item with a width of 100 pixels becomes 200 pixels wide
when run.

Fixes ubports/ubuntu-touch#841
