It does not necessarily need to be level on jack stands but it would be better. It does though need to be at normal operating temperature. Unscrew oil drain plug (1) and allow oil to flow out completely.
Clean oil drain plug and reinstall.

Unscrew filler/fill level monitoring plug (2) and fill transmission until oil overflows. Allow excess oil to drain and reinstall filler/fill level monitoring plug.
Tightening torque 23 00 1AZ.
