Changed defaults to be mixed air.

Fixed bug in the dia_mol units so that it accepts pm instead of angstroms
Added more details to the README

### Instructions
Run: GasFill_GUI.py
Run: GasFill_GUI.py
Entre the values you wish to test and click calculate to get an accurate fill time.
Core Diameter: This is the diameter of the fibre that will be filled with air.
Fibre length: Length of the fibre to be filled with gas.
Temperature: Temperature of the fiber and gas under test.
Molecular weight: In mixed gasses this is the average molecular weight of the gas in air this is ~28.97 g/mol.
Molecular diameter: In mixed gasses this is the average kinetic diameter of the gas molcucules. In air this is 359.99 pm.
