doc: Update Q*PaintDevice docs
Minor syntax typo in QPagedPaintDevice. Some Qt 5 updates in QPaintDevice (QGuiApplication) and a couple of other changes: 1. Usually, we say an object is "painted" or "drawn" when it is drawn on top of another object (like drawEllipse()) not when it is the destination of the draw commands. To be more consistent I updated the language here. 2. What's commonly called a 32-bit display has 24 bits of color information and eight bits of opacity information. This gives a color count which can be accurately represented by int. To avoid confusion, the exception in the docs for colorCount() has been generalized a little.
