    [FLINK-8649] [scala api] Pass on TypeInfo in StreamExecutionEnvironment.createInput

    ## What is the purpose of the change
    In the Scala API, modify `StreamExecutionEnvironment.createInput` to pass through the
implicitly got TypeInfo to the java `createInput` call. With the old code, the Java API tries
to figure out the TypeInfo on its own, which doesn't always work as well as the TypeInfo creation
of the Scala API.
    Note that if the input format implements `ResultTypeQueryable`, then we would like to
retain the old behaviour, so we just do the call into the Java API in the old way in this
case. (`ResultTypeQueryable` can sometimes give a better type than the Scala TypeInfo creation,
e.g. when the result type depends on parametrization of the input format.)
    ## Verifying this change
    This change is a trivial rework / code cleanup without any test coverage.
    ## Does this pull request potentially affect one of the following parts:
      - Dependencies (does it add or upgrade a dependency): no
      - The public API, i.e., is any changed class annotated with `@Public(Evolving)`: no
      - The serializers: no
      - The runtime per-record code paths (performance sensitive): no
      - Anything that affects deployment or recovery: JobManager (and its components), Checkpointing,
Yarn/Mesos, ZooKeeper: no
      - The S3 file system connector: no
    ## Documentation
      - Does this pull request introduce a new feature? no

>             Project: Flink
>          Issue Type: Bug
>          Components: Scala API
>    Affects Versions: 1.4.0
>            Reporter: Gabor Gevay
>            Assignee: Gabor Gevay
>            Priority: Trivial
>             Fix For: 1.5.0
> This is {{StreamExecutionEnvironment.createInput}} in the Scala API:
> {code}
> def createInput[T: TypeInformation](inputFormat: InputFormat[T, _]): DataStream[T] =
>   asScalaStream(javaEnv.createInput(inputFormat))
> {code}
> It should pass on the implicitly got {{TypeInformation}} to Java like this:
> {code}
> def createInput[T: TypeInformation](inputFormat: InputFormat[T, _]): DataStream[T] =
>   asScalaStream(javaEnv.createInput(inputFormat, implicitly[TypeInformation[T]]))
> {code}
> The current situation creates a problem, for example, when we have generics in the type
like in the following code, where the Java API can't deduce the {{TypeInformation}} on its
> {code}
>  StreamExecutionEnvironment.getExecutionEnvironment.createInput[Tuple2[Integer, Integer]](new
ParallelIteratorInputFormat[Tuple2[Integer, Integer]](null))
> {code}
