I ending up find the answer in Wooldridge,2002,p.699. If the variable is not transformed it is a semielasticity, which makes sense as one unit change in the variable causes a % change in the survival or hazard ratio. If a variable is log transformed it is considered an elasticity. In my case log(t)=log(-xb)+e for log-logistic.
