Add ucal_getHostTimeZone C API, wraps the C++ API TimeZone::detectHostTimeZone()

Description

In ICU4C there is a C++ API for getting the host timezone (not ICU's default time zone) which doesn't cache the result: TimeZone::detectHostTimeZone().

This is useful for applications that want to determine the host OS timezone, and to detect if it has changed.

However, there is no corresponding C API for this functionality.

I'd like to propose adding the following API ucal_getHostTimeZone to expose this functionality to ICU C API users.
