perf parse-event: Fix memory leak in evsel->unit

The evsel->unit borrows a pointer of pmu event or alias instead of
owns a string.  But tool event (duration_time) passes a result of
strdup() caused a leak.

It was found by ASAN during metric test:

  Direct leak of 210 byte(s) in 70 object(s) allocated from:
