Even if `tests-dir` is specified, pytest still collects tests on all the repository

See original GitHub issue

Long story short, I have a repository which is quite packed, including sub-directory that have their own tests sub-sub-directory.

When I run mutmut run --tests-dir tests/unit/, the first step still runs python -m pytest -x, which fails on my use case (because of the tests sub-sub-directories which should not be executed).

I would have expected mutmut to run python -m pytest -x tests/unit/ instead.

Is there a point to run pytest on the whole repository or is it an oversight?
