From: He Zhe <zhe.he@windriver.com>

setup_io_tlb_npages does not check input argument before passing it
to isdigit. The argument would be a NULL pointer if "swiotlb", without
its value, is set in command line and thus causes the following panic.

This patch adds a check to prevent the panic and sets it for 4MB by default.
