[processing][xyz tiles] mask layer instead of bbox

The tool is processing tiles in the bounding box of a layer (or other rectangle extends). This is useful in overviews. But especially in higher zoom-levels(for example zoom (19) 20/21/…)) combined with non-rectangle-like areas of interest, there is there is a risk of time-consuming rendering time without usable content. (There is a workaround to subdivide the area of interest in smaller areas. But after that users have merge mbtiles-outputs…). So it may be useful to have the option /ability to render just the tiles covering non-rectangle contents.

Although the UI may become a bit more complicated, it will be worth some thoughts, if there will be a differentiated selection in which zoom-levels shall be rendered at bounding-box-extends (for overviews) and in which zoom-levels shall be rendered at polygon-area-extends. This will reduce the work (and possible-user-bugs) in merging various mbtiles-files (with rectangle- and reduced-just-polygon-covering-tiles)
