fix(libc): limit snprintf radix value

In our unsigned_num_print() function we first print the integer into a
local buffer, then put this through alignment and padding and output the
result. For this we use a local buffer, sized by the maximum possible
length of the largest possible number.

However this assumes that the radix is not smaller than 10, which is
indeed the smallest value we pass into this static function at the
moment. To prevent accidents in the future, should we add support for
other radices, add an assert to enforce our assumption.

Unfortunately this cannot be a static assert (CASSERT), since the
compiler is not smart enough to see that the argument is always coming
from a literal.
