Displaying the parameters that are selected by a user is very important. This gives clarity on information as to what is the input / criteria as per which the report is generated.

Report input parameters are to be shown separately in the top of a report followed by the report data. As a good practice, if the report runs into multiple pages, report input parameters can be repeated on every page as part of report header
