delta H vs delta H naught

Is it correct to say that the units of delta H are only in kJ or J and that the units of delta H naught are only in kJ/mol or J/mol?

Yes that is correct, because $\Delta H^{\circ}$ is the standard enthalpy for a mole of a given compound.

yes, this way delta H naught can be used for any amount of compound given, instead of the specific value that is produced when solving for simply delta H
