[css-flexbox] incorrectly-linkified "flex basis" in spec (wants to be "flex-basis", which will probably fix linkification)

Easy flexbox spec typo-fix, I think:

The "flex-basis" property definition's section on <‘width’> has 2
mentions of "flex basis" (un-hyphenated), followed by 2 mentions of
"flex-basis" (hyphenated).

I think all of these instances are referring to the "flex-basis"
property, so they should all be hyphenated and link to the
property-definition.  (The unhyphenated ones currently link to a
completely different chunk of the spec, which explains the concept of a
flex basis.)

Spec quote:
  # auto
  #  When specified on a flex item, the auto keyword
  #  retrieves the value of the main size property as
  #  the used flex basis.
(Needs hyphen)----^

  # <‘width’>
  #  For all other values, flex basis is resolved
(Needs hyphen)-----------------^
  #  the same way as width in horizontal writing
  #  modes [CSS21]: percentage values of flex-basis
  #  are resolved [...] Similarly, flex-basis [...]
