Increase block download timeout base from 10 to 20 minutes.

This harmonizes the block fetch timeout with the existing ping timeout
 and eliminates a guaranteed eventual failure from congestion collapse
 for a network operating right at its limit.

It's unlikely that we wouldn't suffer other failures if we were really
 anywhere near the network's limit, and a complete avoidance of congestion
 collapse risk requires (I think) an exponential back-off. So this isn't
 a major concern, but I think it's also useful for reducing the complexity
 of understanding out timeouts.
