I know that this is an existing issue but there shouldn't be a space in
"/path/to/ file". Perhaps you could fix that (in a number of places) as part
of this patch. You could probably leave out the "/path/to/" part altogether as 
it may be clearer, see below.

Also, could you wrap the long code lines in the sections that you change at 
80 chars using "\" to keep them on the page in the PDF docs, like:

    $RTE_TARGET/app/testpmd -c '0xf' -n 4 \
        --vdev 'net_pcap0,rx_pcap=/path/to/file_rx.pcap,tx_pcap=/path/to/file_tx.pcap' \
        -- --port-topology=chained

Or without the path part:

    $RTE_TARGET/app/testpmd -c '0xf' -n 4 \
        --vdev 'net_pcap0,rx_pcap=file_rx.pcap,tx_pcap=file_tx.pcap' \
        -- --port-topology=chained
