doc: mention 'git show' defaults to HEAD
When 'git show' is called without any object it defaults to HEAD. This has been true since d4ed9793fd ("Simplify common default options setup for built-in log family.", 2006-04-16). The SYNOPSIS suggests that the object argument is required. Clarify that it is not required and note the default.
