Shall I support both input method. The default decimal input like 120000 default to nano-second and formal time routines like 120us.
Then the tc show command shows formal time routines like 120us whatever in non-json format. Json format shows a decimal number only which is always done by other tc command.

So this would compatible with kernel commit commands examples. But I would mention in the man pages supporting the timer routines input.

I checked the gate UAPI file, there is nothing need to changed for time format.
