Rename the noise parameter in SARCalibration


There is a noise bool parameter SARcalibration. setting this parameter to true disable the noise removal step of the calibration. This is not clear, for example the command line

otbcli_SARCalibration -in input.tif -out output.tif -noise true

could be understood wrongly as the calibration of input.tif with noise removal.

This Merge Request introduces a removenoise parameter to clear this ambiguity, when removenoise is set to true, the noise is removed if the input sensor supports it. The documentation has also been updated to state which sensor support noise removal (Sentinel 1 and TerraSAR-X).

For now, noise is deprecated, as removing it directly would break the API. The parameter will be definitely removed in OTB 8.0.
