No. In Professional Football, in order to be "down" a receiver has to be tackled or in your scenario touched by a defensive player while on the ground.

Is it a completed pass if both knees are on the ground?

Yes. It is a completed pass if both knees are on the ground. The only situation that would make it an incomplete pass is if one or both knees were out of bounds. In college football, the play would be whistled dead and the line of scrimmage would be at the dead ball spot. In the NFL, if the receiver was not touched while in the process of making the catch, he is free to continue his forward progress until he is tackled. I have seen receivers roll while on the ground, and many times they dive or fall while making the catch and get up and run...
