the delta used to defines the difference between real pps and expected
pps, the case fails if it exceed the absolute number specified by
'accepted_tolerance' in conf/nic_single_core_perf.cfg, the deault is
1Mpps, which is not friendly when the expected is only a few of million,
so updated the accepted_tolerance to a percentage, considering the CI
intergation, so the type is float.

Here are main changes:
* the meaning of accepted_tolerance
    before: threshold for (real-mpps - expected-mpps)
    after: threshold for (real-mpps - expected-mpps)/expected-mpps
* Pass criteria
    before:
      real-mpps - expected-mpps > -accepted_tolerance
    after:
      (real-mpps - expected-mpps)/expected-mpps > -accepted_tolerance
* rst table
    before:
      ... +---------------+-----------------+--------+
      ... | Expected-Mpps | Real - Expected | Status |
      ... +===============+=================+========+
      ... | 9.900         | -0.040          | PASS   |
      ... +---------------+-----------------+--------+

    after:
      ... +---------------+------------+--------+
      ... | Expected-Mpps | Fluc Ratio | Status |
      ... +===============+============+========+
      ... | 9.900         | -0.004     | PASS   |
      ... +---------------+------------+--------+
* delta in JSON:
    before: real-mpps - expected-mpps
    after: (real-mpps - expected-mpps)/expected-mpps
