Is squamous cell carcinoma keratoacanthoma variant deadly?

Not really. Not necessarily. It could appear suddenly and grow rapidly. But then it will reach a certain size then it will stop growing, and then regress weeks to months later. As long as it is contained, localized in the skin- surgical resection will take care of that . However if it has metastasized ( which is not common ) -then it will give you problem.
