This is largely stylistic. Typically they would be singular. (Name, Address, etc.) However, your "Parameter name" entries have multiple parameters names, so you might show that with the headings:

| Parameter category | Parameter names |

or: (if there may be any number of parameter names)

| Parameter category | Parameter name(s) |
