Celsius should be seldom used unless you're quoting a temperature in Celsius (like T= 25 $\displaystyle ^o$C)

The units you wrote do not correspond to entropy, but to specific entropy with units kJ/kg.K. As advised above one should always use the Kelvin units for temperature. When units are in denominator we indeed are using corresponding delta value of unit magnitude on a given scale. This fact needs to be always kept in mind.
