Calling down with KK on a board pairing river

Blinds: $0.25/$0.50 (5 Players) BN: $50.00 (Hero)
SB: $49.22
BB: $59.50
UTG: $36.33
CO: $40.67
Preflop ($0.75) Hero is BN with K K
UTG folds, CO raises to $1.17, Hero raises to $3.51, SB calls $3.26, BB folds, CO calls $2.34
SB is a loose/passive rec.
Flop ($11.03) 6 J Q
SB checks, CO checks, Hero bets $3.64, SB raises to $9.28, CO folds, Hero calls $5.64
I have decent range advantage on this board. I bet small on flop because we're multiway. When I get check-raised, I'm a bit concerned. But I only lose to QQ, JJ, QJ and 66. Villain could be check-raising top pair, and I'm getting good odds. So, I cannot fold.
Turn ($29.59) 6 J Q 2
SB bets $9.18, Hero calls $9.18
Turn is brick and I'm getting a great price, so I keep calling. I am not worried about BDFD because I have Kh.
River ($47.95) 6 J Q 2 2
SB bets $16.81, Hero calls $16.81
River is interesting because if Villain was value-betting QJ, I am now in the lead. Even though his bet looks "obviously" like a value bet, I have to call, right?
