Incorrect use of is function in PIR tests raises misleading error

When attempting to compare two non-Number values with the is function in a PIR test using an epsilon parameter, the following error occurs:

too many positional arguments: 4 passed, 4 expected

This message is misleading (not to mention that it makes no sense) and should be replaced with something more suitable.
