Document how to specify multiple excludeMetrics

The documentation mentions multiple patterns can be given by repeating
the `excludeMetrics` setting but it was unclear to me how to proceed.

The setting is fetched using a getStringList() which comes from jgit and
indeed one just need to repeat it. An example makes it clearer.

I also thought the matching was to be done against the metric names
exposed to Prometheus, but it is instead done against the Gerrit metric
name (`/` separated).

The doc mentions the matching is done on the whole key, document that it
is internally using `regex.Matcher.matches()` (and not `lookingAt()`
which matches at the start of the subject).  The multiple values
example does use a lead carret '^' which indicates matching at the start
of metric name has to be set explicitly.
