|mach run| accepts --debbugparams and |mach mochitest| accepts --debugger-args

It's confusing that one works and the other doesn't.

Bug 1257451 - Make |mach run| use --debugger-args instead of --debugparams, like the mochitest/reftest commands do.

I suspect some people will be caught off guard by this backwards incompatible change. You may want to consider still accepting the old argument, but printing a warning and forwarding the value to `args.debugger_args`.
