Default Update kickstart-docs iscsi commands information (#525136)

Update kickstart-docs iscsi commands information. While at it I also
noticed that the example value for harddrive --biospart is wrong (does
not include a partition number) so I've fixed that too.

Looks fine, but note the bug is not approved for 5.5 so you'll have to
park it on a staging branch for a while.
