In brief: Either is great.

Assuming you're wearing adequate footwear, walking is a great low-impact aerobic exercise.
Walking outside is great for variety and fresh air, but just be aware of your surroundings and stay safe. With a treadmill you can listen to music or watch TV to keep you going longer.
