You can set the altitude relative to the ground, or an absolute value.

Settings

Technical Note - About KML

KML is an XML language for showing geographic annotation and visualization on internet-based maps. It was developed for use with Google Earth™, which was originally named Keyhole Earth Viewer. For more information, see the KML article on Wikipedia.

If you want to edit your KML file in more detail, you can open it in Google Earth™ or Notepad and edit it there. For more technical information about the file format, see the KML Documentation on the Google™ website.
