Docs: Add XSS warning to docs for remove_query_arg

On, the page for add_query_arg contains a warning that the return value of the function is not escaped, and as such is not safe to use directly.

The same applies to remove_query_arg, but not such warning is present there.

I propose adding the same warning to the docs for remove_query_arg. I'll attach a patch to that effect to this ticket.
