Setting a Variable Temperature Profile

I need to set a temperature at a boundary condition that varies or reduces as the height of the boundary grows. I tried creating an expression of the form:
Where z is the z coordinate, but it gave me an error message telling me that I can't assign a dimension to a non-dimension variable as distance. In other words, I can't tell CFX that z is Kelvin and not m. And besides since there is an addition in the formula, it also showed that the dimensions wouldn't match since there is temperature and distance in it.
Any advise for what can I do about this?
PD: The boundary condition has a semi-cylindrical shape with a variable height between -3 and 73 m

Have you tried
Temp=0.008 [K m^-1]*z+300 [K]
The last [K] is assigned only to the "300" part, not the whole eq.
On the same window where you set the variable, there is an "Evaluate" option, where you can see what will happen to the variable (in your case Temp) changing the inputs (in your case Z)
