Your net momentum in the room reference frame is zero. So you are not going to fall off the front or the back of the treadmill. I presume the treadmill is tilted at a slight angle so as to give the impression of running a bit uphill. When the treadmill stops, you will feel a slight force tilting you to the rear. You might stumble a bit but it shouldn't be too hard to keep your balance.
