Concrete should be flat. Self-leveling compound is used to fill low spots.

When it is said that the floor should be flat...the general specs acceptable would be 1/8 inch in 6 feet or 3/16 inch in 10 feet span.
Using a straight and true 2x4 for example, lay that out along the floor at different angles to see how 'unflat' the floor is. If you only have a coulpe of high spots, you could grind them down..or use a rasp/file to smooth them out.
Do try to get the floor as flat as possible...
