    CB-12287: Remove hardcoded simulator build destination

    Please make sure the checklist boxes are all checked before submitting the PR. The checklist
    is intended as a quick reference, for complete details please see our Contributor Guidelines:
    ### Platforms affected
    iOS 4.3.1 and below
    ### What does this PR do?
    In `cordova-ios@4.3.1` and below, the Xcode build destination when building for a simulator
is hardcoded as "iPhone 5s". This works as long as the user has an iPhone 5s simulator installed,
but if they remove it, the build process breaks.
    This PR follows the same logic as `cordova emulate ios` in choosing a default destination,
but also respects `--target` if specified. For example:
        $ cordova emulate ios       # will currently select iPhone SE simulator to build against
and emulate
        $ cordova emulate ios --target="iPhone-7-Plus"  # will build against and emulate on
the iPhone 7+
    If there are no simulators available, the behavior is undefined, but Xcode wouldn't be
able to build either.
    ### What testing has been done on this change?
    Manual tests and `npm test`
    ### Checklist
    - [X] [Reported an issue]( in the JIRA
    - [X] Commit message follows the format: "CB-3232: (android) Fix bug with resolving file
paths", where CB-xxxx is the JIRA ID & "android" is the platform affected.
    - [X] Added automated test coverage as appropriate for this change.
        - Note: a couple of tests were modified so that they could pass, but they don't actually
test this issue. Tests covering the inner logic will come in a separate PR
