 Administration: Ensure an integer is used for menu priority in

 This change adds a verification of the `$position` parameter in
 `add_menu_page()` to ensure an integer is used. If not, the function
 informs developers of the wrong parameter type via a `_doing_it_wrong`
 message. This brings consistency with a similar check used in

 This change also typecasts any floating number to string to ensure that in
 case a float value was passed, at least it doesn't override existing

 Follow-up to [46570].

 Props kirtan95.
 Fixes #54798. See #48249.
