Heat capacity is most commonly given in Joules/Celcius. Specific heat capacity is most commonly given in Joules/(Celcius x grams). Unless the problem specifies that the final answer has to given in joules, using kilojoules is ok.
As mentioned above, the units for heat capacity should be Joules/Celcius (J/°C) but if given kilojoules (kJ), this should be an acceptable answer as well unless the question specifically asks for joules, in which you would have to convert from kilojoules to joules.
