[torqueusers] Online docs missing queue resource "nodes"

Hey Dave:
So for a default queue, it is fine to have both resources_default.ncpus and resources_default.nodes = 1?  Or should we just stick with just nodes?

  Fixed!  Thanks.  ncpus are processors which are constrained to being
on the same host (usually).  Over the life of some PBS variants, this
interpretation has varied.  Maui/Moab do their best to distill the
meaning based on context.
