Because of the rear ports, you don't want them flush against a wall, probably six inches at least out. The bass can get muddy. So if the desk option has you placing them against the wall, but stands would let you set them out some, that's better.
If you are sitting at the desk to use them, it is advantageous to have them up where the tweeters are close to ear level, or aimed upwards so that the tweeters are aimed at your ears.
