Struggling to find a documentation style guide that actually states
it, but think in general imperative is preferred over simple present.
See for instance `man grep` -w and -x (and in fact the whole file).
The pdftoppm man page is not consistent, both tenses are used, compare
-x/-y -opw/-upw or -png -jpeg.

Probably. I don't want to rewrite the whole manpage as part of this
change, it seems unrelated.

I've changed the print ones in pdftocairo, see amended patch also with
other wording tweaks attached.
