I got this picture from the Wikipedia entry for Tracheid. What are the roundish objects in the sketch?
Also are tracheids sclerenchyma cells?

The 'roundish stuffs' you are seeing are called 'pits'. The Dictionary of Botany defines a pit as '[a] cavity in the secondary cell wall, allowing exchange of substances between adjacent cells'. The pit itself is composed from a aperture, named the pit cavity and an environing membrane called the 'pit membrane'. The pit is comparatively analogous to the plasmodesmata connecting protoplasts by thin connecting vessels. The difference exists in the presence of pits within the xylem while plasmodesmata arise between other non-vascular cells additionally.
To respond to your second question, where sclerenchyma cells are strengthened, lignified cells, tracheid cells are indeed the 'tracheary' or vascular specialisation of sclerenchyma tissue.
