Convert kW/m to Centigrade?

Short answer is no, as they are different units measuring different things. Centigrade is a measurement of temperature, whereas kW/m is power per unit of length. Depending on the specific case there may be some relationship, but you don't give any detail.

Interested the relationship between flamelength and temperture.

I = 300h^2

where I = fireline intensity in KW/m
h = flamelength

What flamelength would be required to kill x plant if lethal temperture is predicted to be x?
