org-capture: Fix "org-find-olp: Wrong type argument: stringp, nil"

* lisp/org-capture.el (org-capture-expand-file): Empyt string defaults
  to `org-default-notes-file'.
* lisp/org.el (org-default-notes-file): Do not fallback on
`remember-data-file' since "org-capture.el" is not based off
"remember.el" anymore.
